It is expected that Jassim’s delegation will have a direct meeting with MU leadership on March 17 (London time) to promote the acquisition. After that, the Glazer family also continued to meet with Jim Ratcliffe, the richest billionaire in England, who also owns MU .
However, the Guardian confirmed that Jassim is the most likely to buy MU among the candidates. First, the Qatari billionaire can open up many other business opportunities for the Glazer family. Next, Jassim, ie Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) fund is ready to buy back 100% of MU shares. On the other hand, Ratcliffe only wants to buy back 69% of the shares.
Ratcliffe is also said to be not interested in the acquisition of MU. This billionaire only met the Glazer family after going to France to watch Nice, a team also owned by him, against Sheriff in the Europa Conference League at 3am on March 17 (Hanoi time).
UEFA also “paved the way” for the acquisition of MU to be favorable . Aleksander Ceferin , UEFA President, confirmed that the rule that a unit owns many teams may be about to be abolished. Ineos, the company of billionaire Ratcliffe, owns two clubs, Nice (France) and Lausanne (Switzerland), while QSI owns PSG (France).
” We don’t just think about MU. I know five or six owners of one club who want to buy another. We have to look. More and more people are interested in owning these many clubs. . We should not say no to investments in owning many clubs, but need to review the rules , “said Mr. Ceferin.
In addition to MU, QSI is also looking to buy Malaga club in La Liga.
