In one day, two of them entered the battle for the purchase of Manchester United

The Emir of Qatar, Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, one of the richest men in the United Kingdom, also made a bid for Manchester United, a member of the English Premier League. The billionaires announced Monday, Friday, after the previous owners, the Glazer family, indicated at the start of the year that they intended to sell the club.

On Friday, there was a lot of hustle and bustle around the home of Manchester United. Although it is not about the club directly, but in the British press, because Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, and businessman Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who considers himself a fan of the Red Devils, also made their offer. The Emir of Qatar wants to buy the old English club through Qatar Islamic Bank, and according to the news, it is at least five billion pounds. The offer from the Qatari investors will result in significant investment within the team. Old Trafford and the Carrington training ground are in need of renovation, and the Qataris are ready to donate money to improve the club’s infrastructure.

The Raine Group – which is organizing the details of the sale on behalf of the Glazer family – has asked all interested clients to submit their first offers by 10pm UK time on Friday. Accordingly, Sir Jim Ratflex also joined the “fight”. According to The Telegraph, the British businessman — who is chairman and CEO of chemicals company INEOS — wants to run MU for the rest of his life, whose victory in the 1999 BL he backed immediately. And the 70-year-old billionaire is preparing to buy the Red Devils under the slogan “Return Manchester to Manchester United”, which means that he will certainly lead the club according to the previous traditions.

Ratcliffe also tried to buy Chelsea last year, but it was then owned by American Todd Bohle. According to a survey by The Athletic, 66% of Manchester United fans want the English businessman to be their new owner, while 17% voted for the Qatari investors. Manchester United, which has won 20 league titles, ranks third in the Premier League table, five points behind city rivals.
