Man Utd takeover LIVE: Qatar and Ratcliffe bids ‘not yet received’ in shock update

March 22, 2023

The Glazer family appear to be close to finally receiving the price they want for Manchester United, after months of officially being for sale on the market.

Another day goes by with Manchester United fans desperate to hear a breakthrough has finally been made in the protracted sale of the club.

The Glazer family remain locked in negotiations to end their long tenure at the helm of the north west club, but glimmers of hope are beginning to appear.

The two main battling candidate, Sheikh Jassim of Qatar and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, have each shown a willingness to put their money where their mouth is and find huge amounts to put on the table.

An eye-watering £6billion valuation from the Glazers has always been an obstacle, but now it appears a breakthrough is being made.

Within the last 24 hours the first signs have emerged that Sheikh Jassim is now willing to meet the figure in order to eliminate Ratcliffe from the standings and finally get his hands on the club.

Regardless, it will not be a smooth ride and countless complexities still lay ahead, not to mention the upcoming summer transfer window.
