Fabrizio Romano, a journalist, has disclosed that the Manchester United takeover could be “crucial” in a future transfer move for Jude Bellingham.
What are the most recent Manchester United takeover rumors?
The club’s future appears to be uncertain at the present, with the club potentially up for sale. Indeed, the Glazers have been dealing with proposals for their asset.
According to Sky Sports, Raine Group, the firm in charge of the sale, has urged bidders such as Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe to submit their final proposals by the end of April.
When the Glazer family makes a definitive decision, it will be evident how much financial firepower the Red Devils will have in the summer transfer market.
This means that the team could enter the hunt to recruit Borussia Dortmund star Bellingham.
Indeed, Romano stated (2:54) on his YouTube channel: “So let’s see how the strategy will be at Manchester United to understand if they will decide to join the race for Jude Bellingham or not.” As a result, the timing of Man United’s sale could be critical.
“As a result, Real Madrid and Manchester City remain in contention.” Let’s see if Manchester United gets involved.”
Will Manchester United bring in Jude Bellingham?
The major news surrounding the English 19-year-old is that Premier League rivals Liverpool have withdrawn from the race to recruit him.
After all, Bellingham is projected to cost roughly £135 million with add-ons, with a salary of around £300,000 per week.
With such sums deterring Liverpool, it’s questionable whether Manchester United would be able or willing to spend the money on Bellingham.
The Glazers may have reservations about investing huge money while their top asset is poised to leave their possession. While it is unknown how much money potential new owners such as Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe are willing to spend.
The Glazers are seeking at least £6 billion to sell United.
Sheikh Jassim is said to be “willing to overpay” to close the purchase.
While money may not be a concern for some, in theory, this type of expense could have an impact on future transfers if a sale is completed. After all, if Sheikh Jassim or Sir Jim Ratcliffe is compelled to overpay, they may be reticent to spend much more on a single player such as Bellingham.
