There were delays when it came to the second-round offers for Manchester United this week. The latest update tells that Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar has followed Sir Jim Ratcliffe by giving a revised bid to buy one of the world’s biggest football teams.
There is also a Finnish entrepreneur who is trying to make a sound in the background to buy the club. But it is considered that Sheik Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe are the two parties who are the leading contenders to buy Manchester United and replace the Glazers.
Sheik Jassim has made a second bid to buy Manchester United
The latest from The Athletic is that Sheikh Jassim has joined rival bidders by making a second offer for the club. In the first round of bidding to buy Manchester United, the highest price was £4.5bn according to Kaveh Solhekol, but the Glazers want at least £6bn.
The Daily Mail also said that Sheikh Jassim’s second bid arrived late on Friday night. This was because Sheik Jassim told to Manchester United in a meeting on tuesday that they want to extend the deadline for bidding. The deadline was at 9 pm on Wednesday.
Mike Keegan said: “Those close to the process insist that the Glazer family, who own United, have set a price for the club. However, there remains concern that they will seek an unrealistic sum north of £6bn.”
There is still no guarantee that the Glazers will sell, but everyone must be aware that they are trying to push for the biggest offer they can get here.
