Sheikh Jassim’s ultimatum to the owners of Manchester United
DBasia.news – Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani’s intention to acquire Manchester United was evident, but he wanted full control of The Red Devils. The Glazers reportedly sold the club for £5 billion.
However, according to speculations, the Glazer family still wants to invest in Old Trafford even if only with a minority stake so that they still have power in the club. Suddenly, the Glazer family’s offer package was flatly rejected by Sheikh Jassim, who from the start wanted to fully acquire Man United without any interference from minority shares from other parties.
According to CBS Sports, the Glazer family’s approach to Sheikh Jassim was deemed unconscionable. The media said that Sheikh Jassim stood by his stance: full takeover or nothing!
Sheikh Jassim is actually not the only Man United enthusiast who is at the forefront. Sir Jim Ratcliffe is also a favoured candidate to acquire the Red Devils, where the two camps are still in a battle for power at the Theater of Dreams.
