Sheikh Jassim expected to make second Manchester United takeover bid

Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani is expected to make a second bid to take over Manchester United.

Today, his representatives and advisers travelled to Manchester to meet with the club regarding the bidding process.

All parties that have submitted offers will be asked to make revised bids within the next 10 days, according to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, who also confirmed that the Qatari visit to Old Trafford went well and was “very constructive”.

A US source has stated: “There should be no doubt at all that Jassim wants to be the owner and custodian of United.”

Sheikh Jassim’s first bid is believed to be in the region of around £4.5 billion – £1.5 billion short of the Glazers’ £6 billion valuation. Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who has also been public with his interest, tabled a £4.3 million offer, as per The Athletic.

The Englishman is also expected to meet with the club this week to discuss his side of the deal.

The next fortnight will be pivotal to the future of the club and we will continue to update as the process progresses.
