UEFA grant boost to Qatari investors ahead of potential Manchester United bid

The future of Manchester United has yet to be decided.

We know that the Glazers are expecting bids this week, Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS will be making an offer, and Qatari investors are expected to be the frontrunners with the American family likely to sell to the highest bidder.

Ever since there has been reported interest from Qatar, I have questioned how that would see United fall victim of sportswashing and how it could raise questions over multi-club ownership.

However, a new report from the Daily Mail suggests UEFA will not block a Qatari ownership of Manchester United which comes as a major boost for the bidding group from the Middle East state.

While Qatar Sports Investments already own Paris Saint-Germain, it is understood that the bid for United will come from a separate entity. This could swing in their favour in terms of being granted approval from UEFA to make an offer this week.

It has even suggested that the Emir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani is a Manchester United supporter, as per Sky Sports.

Let us know in the comments how you would feel about a Qatari investment group owning Manchester United.
