Qatari Billionaire Sets Deadline for Glazers Family to Sell Manchester United
The Qatari business owner, Sheikh Jassim Bin has submitted his final bid to buy Manchester United and has also set Friday, June 9th, 2023 as the deadline.
This is the fifth bid that has been made by Sheikh Jassim since he submitted his first in February. The Glazers family has not chosen a preferred bidder since they announced April 28th, 2023 for submission of final bids.
Manchester United supporters have been impatient with the way the process of selling the club have been taking time. The Glazers announced their interest in selling Manchester United in November 2022.
There are reports from Old Trafford that the sale needs to be processed fast to strengthen Erik Ten Hag’s squad ahead of the 2023/24 football season.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim have emerged as the two leading candidates in the race to become the new owners of the club. Manchester United has been valued at £ 6 billion.
