Manchester United bidders believe club is still for sale despite contrasting reports

A sense a fear swept through the Manchester United fanbase last night when a Mail on Sunday report suggested the Glazers are planning to take Manchester United off the market.

The report interpreted the Glazer’s decision as part of a plan to put the club back up for sale in 2025 when they believe their valuation of £7bn-£10bn will be met.

Former Manchester United captain turned pundit Gary Neville was sceptical while it’s likely to cause more anger at games where fans have held regular anti-Glazer protests.

Contrary to that report, Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol believes the bidders hoping to buy United still remain interested in a takeover and believe the club remains up for sale.

Solhelkol’s article states that those involved in the takeover process, including Raine Group, have not been told of any change in regards to the club being listed for sale.

The two front runners in the bidding process include Sheikh Jassim of Qatar and Sir Jim Ratcliffe. It is believed that they’ve both fallen short of the valuation the Glazers set, which is said to be in the region of £6bn.

This only brings more uncertainty to the situation if journalists are hearing completely different stories from their sources.
