The Emir of Qatar is interested in purchasing United, but there are key barriers to a deal – including Uefa’s ownership rules
According to the Daily Mail on Wednesday, a group of “individual Qatari investors” will imminently bid to buy Manchester United, the 20-times champions of England. The Qatari offer, the Mail claimed, would “blow the competition out of the water”. Qatari interest in United has been confirmed by the Guardian, with Jamie Jackson reporting that the Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, is interested in buying the club. However, he will not be blowing anyone out of the water and instead believes a £4.5bn valuation of United is fair, which is under the £6bn figure the Glazer family, who have owned United since 2005, are reportedly after.
