Glazers Abandon Manchester United Sale

According to a Daily Mail source, the Glazers, who have owned United since 2005, will continue to run the club for the foreseeable future. 

Despite offers from Sheikh Jassim of Qatar and Jim Ratcliffe, their new £10 billion asking price was not met by any of the bidders. The American businessmen appear content to keep their asset until a suitable offer comes along.

Neither bid came close to the Glazers’ £6 billion valuation of the Premier League giants. Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim have been battling for control of the talks for months, with several rounds of deadlines for improved offers. 

Those discussions appear to be over, with the Daily Mail reporting that the Glazers will take United off the market. The failure of any bidder to come close to their anticipated asking price is said to be the reason for the move. 

The Glazers had hoped that multiple serious bidders would be enticed to make offers, but this did not occur. According to reports, the Glazers will now look to relist United in 2025.

There’s already been a protest against their ownership this season and anti-Glazer songs sung every time United play, whether that be at Old Trafford or on the road.
