Sky Sports News reported that unnamed sources in New York stated that “there should not be any doubt that Sheikh Jassim would like to be the owner/custodian” of United.


Although Sheikh Jassim, his team and others have visited Old Trafford before as fans, the main focus of the most recent visit was to assess the impact of their capital investment on infrastructure, youth development, and the women’s team.

His top team included experts in finance, banking and property law.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, founder of INEOS, has also offered to purchase the club.
