Sir Jim Ratcliffe competes with Middle Eastern and American investors to buy Manchester United from the Glazer family. The Glazer family’s club is attracting more buyers.

Investors from the Middle East and the United States are competing with Sir Jim Ratcliffe in order to acquire Manchester United from the Glazer family. This interest in purchasing the club from the Glazer family is growing.

There are several more parties besides Sir Jim Ratcliffe that are considering making an offer to purchase Manchester United from the Glazer family.

Following in the footsteps of fierce competitors Liverpool, the Glazer family said in November that they had placed Manchester United up for sale. They had high hopes that the announcement would ignite a competitive bidding process, which would push the asking price closer to £5 billion. After a preliminary period of low interest, it would appear that they were successful in generating enthusiasm.
