Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani, the prospective owner of Manchester United, has told GIVEMESPORT that he will “try until the end” to buy the Old Trafford club.
The Red Devils have received bids for ownership from Qatari and INEOS chairman Sir Jim Ratcliffe.
Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani is the new owner of Manchester United.
Sheikh Jassim, according to reports, has submitted an increased fourth proposal in a last-ditch attempt to buy Manchester United from the Glazers.
The Qatari offer is thought to be close to £5 billion, but less than the initial £6 billion value placed on the club by its existing owners.
The Sun reported last week that Ratcliffe had revised his offer to let Joel and Avram Glazer continue at Old Trafford following his takeover, which the Americans apparently considered as the preferable choice.
Jassim’s late offer, however, may have changed the course of events, but the 44-year-old is still reported to have pushed for 100% control of the club, unlike Ratcliffe.
According to Sky Sports writer Dharmesh Sheth, United head coach Erik ten Hag and recruitment staff have been left in the dark about their summer plans due to a delay in the takeover.
Jassim will battle until the end to buy Manchester United, according to Romano.
What did Romano have to say about Manchester United and Sheikh Jassim?
“On the Qatari side, they still want to try until the end to buy Manchester United,” Romano told GIVEMESPORT. As a result, I would leave the situation open.
“The next few days will undoubtedly be critical in finally resolving this situation.” “I believe it is critical for the club to plan for the summer transfer window.”
What is next for Manchester United?
Sheikh Jassim’s fresh bids will give the Glazers pause before deciding on their chosen bidder.
Following protests before their recent 1-0 victory against Aston Villa at Old Trafford, the Red Devils supporters have made their emotions known regarding the possibility of their American owners remaining at the club in some manner.
As a result, it’s likely that most United fans would prefer a Qatari purchase of the Premier League giants as they look to a future without the Glazers for the first time since 2005.
Meanwhile, ten Hag will be hoping for a quick conclusion as he prepares for the summer transfer market in order to bolster his squad for an assault on the Premier League and Champions League next season.
