UWS podcast: Andy Mitten talks Manchester United bids with Jim O’Neill

The three known bidders for Manchester United are set to engage in a mega-money auction in the next few weeks as the race to buy the biggest football club in the world intensifies.

So far INEOS owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani have issued statements pending their interest in acquiring a contract stake in Manchester United.

Furthermore, we have US hedge fund firm Elliot Advisory expressing interest in financial a bid for United, which could give Joel and Avram Glazer a chance to remain as majority owners — which is something Manchester United fans definitely don’t want.

I wanted to bring your attention to the latest episode of the United We Stand podcast, with Jim O’Neill.

If you haven’t already heard of O’Neill from his involvement with the Red Knights, he is a passionate United fan and a British economist. As an expert in football finance, it’s always interesting to hear his takes on United and the Glazer family.

O’Neill discusses the various bids to buy Manchester United and it makes for a good listen, so stick the kettle on and relax. Mitten has served up 50 minutes of insightful chat on the topic.
