Glazers threaten to stay and stop sale of Manchester United



The preference of the Raine Group would require QSI to cash in extremely quickly on PSG, in order to buy Manchester United football club outright early in this year. While QSI insists it is committed to PSG, that scenario seems impossible. 


The Glazers hope to have sold Manchester United by the time the summer transfer window comes around (Talksport). According to Adam Crafton, sources close to Qatar Sports Investments have confirmed that there are interests in Manchester United. 


Manchester United's search for an investor is likely to result in the sale of the club. It remains to be seen whether a Sovereign wealth fund will launch a bid, although such a development would not be unexpected.


The costs involved will be vast, with a huge bill to redevelop Old Trafford and build a new stadium, along with the prospect of a significant upgrade to the training ground.


A bottom line asking price of six billion could be more palatable to would-be buyers, although even that price exceeds even the most general valuations of financial experts.  


Sir Jim Ratchliffe’s Ineos company faces substantial competition, with multiple parties already involved from the US and beyond.


The Glazers would rather stay in control of Manchester United than take a penny less than six billion pounds. As reported by the People’s Person yesterday, the Glazers have aspirations of getting over eight billion pounds for United.  


That is a valuation quite some way past the borders of ridiculous, and would almost certainly rule out just about every potential buyer on the planet, short of a Sovereign wealth fund.  


In essence, the current owners are threatening to extend their tenure unless someone offers them a 20.3 billion pound markup on Forbes’ most recent valuation. (One Football)  


Manchester United have secured their place in the carabao cup finals at Wembley Stadium last night. This had come after the Reds managed to keep a three-nil clean sheet against rivals Nottingham Forest. 


Erik Ten Hag has been very pleased with the overall performance of his squad.


“We want to construct the best team,” Ten Hag confirmed. “First in England, then in Europe, and then in the world”. 


Former Manchester United midfielder and current football Pundit Paul Scholes analyzed the Reds’ play during the cup semi-finals last night.


“Aside from the pass which went astray and set Nottingham Forest away on the attack, I was impressed with Facundo Pellistri's cameo tonight,” Scholes said. “It was only his second appearance for the club and his first against premier league opposition, but he exuded fearlessness in spite of this. Additionally, he displayed the intricacies of his game when on the ball, and his run in behind ultimately led to Bruno Fernandez’ late goal… His cross also could have led to Wout Weghorst scoring if he could have gained a better connection on his header. He just has that something about him. A loan could suit him if game time is set to be limited, but it would be foolish to let him go permanently anytime soon”.
