Finally on Man united takeover: New owner’s finally succeeded in buying Man united, all documents to be signed tomorrow morning, jubilation at Old Trafford

Sheikh Jassim has now been able to purchase Man United. All paperwork will be signed tomorrow morning, and there will be celebrations at Old Trafford.

Journalist Ben Jacobs asserts that there is still uncertainty about the circumstances at Old Trafford and that there is a “mixed narrative” surrounding the Manchester United takeover process.

What’s new with Man United’s acquisition?

The Glazers listed the Manchester United team for sale in November 2022, and since then, the process of a possible takeover has advanced at an almost glacial pace.

Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani of Qatar and Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s INEOS are the two contenders for ownership of United.

Sheikh Jassim is currently regarded as the favorite to purchase the team outright after considerable back and forth about possible takeover, with multiple proposals made by both sides.

But as this takeover drags on, there’s a sense that the Glazers might not even sell the team at the end of it, and those concerns intensify.

Journalist Jacobs has provided a significant update on the takeover process, indicating that there is still a gap between the Glazers and the party making the acquisition and that, even if the potential deal is moving slowly forward, there is still uncertainty.

“There’s a mixed narrative about why we’re not seemingly getting any movement,” Jacobs stated in an interview with GIVEMESPORT. As a result, the group believes that they are awaiting word from the Glazers and the Raine Group.

However, the seller’s intimate sources continue to suggest that the delays are caused by a group. To put it another way, they need additional details before they are prepared to sign.

Ready to sign refers to both organizations having completed the duties and responsibilities customarily assigned to the highest-ranked bidder. In order to begin the completion procedure, both must stand six feet from the finish line.

“To get there, it requires a lot of legal and logistical box ticks. So, the groups imply that they are ready, and the Glazers must decide.”

Jacobs added: “But sources close to the selling side are implying the delays are down to the fact that the groups are not as ready as they perhaps are intimating they are. This is normal within a takeover to have these two different sides.

“But it’s also an indication that nothing is paused at this point. It’s quietly ticking along behind the scenes. And as we’ve had throughout the process, the Glazers simply need to show their hands. If they don’t, the situation won’t be any clearer.”

The lack of communication and transparency regarding the takeover will undoubtedly unnerve United supporters who are desperate for the Glazers to sell the club

It also impacts United’s business during the transfer window with a lack of clarity surrounding funds and available budget, making Erik ten Hag’s life more difficult in the market.

Despite question marks over finances, the Red Devils have still managed to remain active in the market as they look to build on the success Ten Hag helped provide last season.

Who are Man United signing?

Having confirmed the signings of Andre Onana, Mason Mount and a surprise deal for former player Jonny Evans, the takeover process has not entirely disrupted Ten Hag’s business.

However, there is more to do for the Red Devils, who are keen on bringing in a new number nine and a centre-back this summer.

United’s striker search is yet to fully take shape with most discussions at preliminary stages at present, but it appears that Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund is the priority target at the moment.

It’s thought that United would need to cough up a fee close to €100m for the Denmark international, something the Red Devils seem unwilling to do. However, some negotiation could potentially bring that fee down with Hojlund eager to make the switch to Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, their hunt for defensive reinforcements has led them to Monaco’s Axel Disasi, who appears the priority target for Ten Hag at centre-back, but they will have to fend off Newcastle United who are also keen on the Frenchman.
