Manchester United are inviting formal bids from potential investors over the coming weeks, with a deadline for interested parties set for mid-February.
That is according to Telegraph Sport, which has reported this morning that offers from the Middle East, Asia and United States are “imminent”.
Lifelong United fan Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who is one of Britain’s richest men according to Forbes, is tracking the situation and whilst he has not yet tabled an offer, he may act by the deadline set by the club.
The coming weeks will be pivotal to the Red Devils’ future as they have urged all possible investors to act on their interest.
This aligns with the previously reported plan of overseeing investment in the first quarter of 2023 and before the end of the 2022/2023 campaign, with Champions League qualification being a factor in takeover talks.
Glazers yet to confirm plans
It is currently unconfirmed from the club’s hierarchy whether these talks are regarding a full takeover or minority investment.
However, with how public the situation has been so far and will be before the deadline, it will likely become clear to supporters soon.
