Even if a buyout doesn’t materialize, Premier League heavyweights Man Utd will spend heavily in the summer transfer season, according to rumours.
After defeating Bournemouth 1-0 on Saturday, Man Utd has had a strong debut season under Erik ten Hag and now just needs one more point to qualify for the Champions League.
However, Sheikh Jassim’s fourth bid for Manchester United earlier this week raises the question of whether the team will have new owners before the start of the following season.
Both Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the founder of INEOS, and Sheikh Jassim, the chairman of Qatar Islamic Bank and the son of a former Qatari prime minister, filed what was supposed to be their third and final bids for the club last month.
However, Sheikh Jassim has boosted the amount of his offer, which remains for 100% of the club, will pay off all debt, and includes a separate fund specifically for the club and community in response to rising trust in the Ratcliffe camp.
The takeover situation, which started in November when Man Utd revealed that the board was looking into “strategic alternatives” to promote the club’s growth, with a full sale one option being considered, has officials and personnel at Old Trafford anxious for clarification.
Ten Hag will be eager to expand on his successes thus far, and according to Spanish daily El Pais, if the Glazers remain at the Premier League club, they intend to support the Dutchman in the transfer market.
Harry Kane of Tottenham, Victor Osimhen of Napoli, and Dusan Vlahovic of Juventus are all being evaluated as candidates for a new striker as Manchester United plans the largest “market assault” in the history of football with the goal of bringing in five players for €500 million (£434 million).
According to a source with direct knowledge of Sheikh Jassim’s bid, “United gave us the list of players they wanted to sign.”
