According to rumors, the British government has contacted the Glazers and advised that Sir Jim Ratcliffe should succeed Sheikh Jassim as the club’s owner. Both individuals are still engaged in an argument over who will control Old Trafford. However, the issue is still ‘cloudy’ six months after it was originally reported that the Red Devils might be about to change hands.
According to El Pais, the British government has notified the Glazers that they would like for Ratcliffe to take over as United’s next owner.
However, it appears that in response, the Americans have insisted they will only sell, if at all, to the best bidder.
They are willing to work with Sheikh Jassim, who has so far made four offers for the club, the most recent of which was made on Tuesday.
However, the scenario is said to be “cloudy,” with the Qatari billionaire willing to purchase West Ham if his efforts to acquire United are unsuccessful.
The Glazers, in the opinion of Sheikh Jassim and his group, are spreading rumors that Ratcliffe is the front-runner in order to raise the cost.
According to a source, the Qataris are “very proud,” but they feel the family is being “tacky” throughout the process.
It is also asserted that they are prepared to end negotiations entirely if they believe their offer will be refused.
According to reports, the British government worries that Qatar is not an “example of progressiveness.”
Despite the fact that nations like Abu Dhabi and Saudi Arabia currently own rival teams like Manchester City and Newcastle, the Glazers remain “unfazed.”
It is yet uncertain what will transpire in the end.
However, as the season’s finish draws near, United is still in a state of turmoil, with Erik ten Hag, the team, and the fans all looking for clarification.
Despite rumors of a takeover circulating behind the scenes, the Red Devils are still contributing on the field.
After defeating Bournemouth 1-0 on Saturday, they are now practically guaranteed to compete in the Champions League the following year.
At Vitality Stadium, Casemiro scored the game’s lone goal to win his team a victory.
The only criticism is that we didn’t finish the game, Ten Hag said in admiration of his team after the match.
We had to score the second goal, but that’s just how this group plays. It is difficult to score goals.
“Casemiro scored with amazing precision. For the first 25 minutes, we restrained them and prevented them from breathing.
Everyone is capable of making mistakes, but David de Gea committed one a few weeks ago.
“We have so many clean sheets because we defend with 11 players. David made some outstanding stops.
“I am really delighted with the performance,” he continued. “Bournemouth were already secure and a good opponent, but we started well and created a lot of chances.
“Casemiro scored a great goal with a brilliant finish. Because you may easily make a mistake and give up a goal, I was uneasy when the score was 1-0. The game has to be won.
“We are in the top four, but we are not quite there. We must prevail.
The next game for United is against Chelsea on Thursday at 8 p.m.
Earlier in the season, Casemiro tied a 1-1 draw between the Red Devils and the Blues by canceling out Jorginho’s opening goal.
