Qatari investors are now ready to submit an incredible bid for Manchester United within the next few days, MySportDab reports.
The new potential owners want to give Coach Erik ten Hag the transfer funds he will need at the end of this season.
According to Sources, a group of private, high-wealth individuals based in Qatar are keen to gain ownership of ‘football’s crown jewels’.
They will submit an official bid for United within the coming days, ahead of the deadline set by the Glazers.
United’s owners want more than £6billion for the club, and there is another cost of redeveloping Old Trafford for the new owners.
Such project would over £2bn, but this is not an issue for the Qatari group.
The passion of Manchester United Fans is key to the bid and they may ask fans about a decision for the stadium redevelopment.
However, One big problem is that Qatar Sports Investments are the owners of French club Paris Saint-Germain.
One brand can’t own two clubs in the same competition because United and PSG could meet in the Champions League next season.
The bid for United must come from individual Qatari Investors and they want a full-blown takeover.
Insiders believe the group want to use the knowledge from hosting the World Cup to launch a new project.
Now, this would allow they give Ten Hag a transfer war-chest to compete for signings with the world’s richest clubs.
‘There is a massive budget available,’ they said.
‘These people are very serious. They want to our United back at the top and they are confident to win the bidding war.
‘They want to strengthen the squad to have the best players but also want the best for the community.
‘They remain keen to build on the success of the World Cup. They see Manchester United as the biggest football club in the world, and there is a serious determination to buy it.’
A successful takeover completed would see Manchester’s two biggest clubs on sides of the Qatar-Abu Dhabi rivalry.
Also, Qatari-owned United would now face Saudi-owned Newcastle in the Premier League and they are not friends.
The takeover must be approved by the Premier League and may prove hard to complete due to various concerns.
The Emir of Qatar, Sheik Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, is a committed Manchester United fan till today.
