QSI’s ambitious Premier League plans don’t include Manchester United investment

Qatar Sports Investments have been linked with the takeover of not just Manchester United, but Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.

That is according to a recent report from Bloomberg, along with suggestions that Nasser Al-Khelaifi, chairman of QSI, recently held talks with Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy over a possible purchase of a stake in the club.

The Glazers put United up for sale in November but I wouldn’t be getting excited over this QSI talk…

Other sections of the media don’t believe they are trying to invest in United or Liverpool.

Martyn Ziegler from the Times has disputed the claims with a tweet which read: “Qatar Sports Investments have ambitious plans but understand not looking to invest in Man Utd or Liverpool at the moment. Any PL club investment would be a minority stake as no plans to sell PSG.”

There will be kids on Twitter kicking off over this news because they’re thinking about signing every player under the sun, but it was never going to happen with QSI because they are only able to be minority shareholders. It’s good news that way because it looks like a full sale is still the mission for the Glazers.

Another big factor to consider are QSI’s clear connections with Qatar’s government and the state’s worrying human rights record.

Hopefully there will be a big update to get excited about in the not too distant future.
