Parties from Qatar that are interested in bidding for Manchester United are only interested in a full takeover of the club, not a minority investment.
That is according to Guardian reporter Jamie Jackson, who confirmed they would want “all of the club”.
understand Qatar interest in @ManUtd is NOT about a minority share – it’s all of the club BABY or nothing (usual caveat, of course : this is football things can be all topsy and loads of turvy so may change) pic.twitter.com/eXTjbfNN2e

News circulated this week regarding Qatari interest in the club and their intention to be involved through the bidding process. Offers should be submitted by the mid-month deadline of Friday, February 17.
Qatar’s bid – what it includes
Reports suggested the investors intend to revamp Old Trafford, whether it be by building a new stadium or redeveloping the current one, and put fan engagement at the heart of their ownership. The family is worth an estimated $335 billion and is confident of outbidding others in the race.
Offers may also come from Saudi Arabia, America and England.
Given the forthcoming deadline, the next week could be pivotal to the future of the club and supporters will likely be kept up to date throughout the process.
