Since the billionaire and any other interested parties, including Sheikh Jassim, were given the opportunity to test the waters in terms of whether or not the Glazer family would be willing to sell the club, it has been more than a year since the opportunity was presented to them.
As a result of the numerous false starts that have occurred in terms of announcements, it is reasonable to conclude that the Old Trafford supporters have probably lost interest in the entire process by this point.
In any case, it is believed that the supporters significantly favored a full sale, which is what Sheikh Jassim was proposing. However, Sir Jim’s proposal of a partial takeover, which allowed the Glazers to continue their involvement in the business while providing him with complete control over the footballing side of the business, was the one that ultimately prevailed.
During the time that the announcement is being held up, it gives the fans the opportunity to become even more agitated about the entire situation.
Fabrizio Romano, a respected writer and transfer guru, has provided a big update on the takeover narrative, which will undoubtedly pique the interest of those who follow the Red Devils.
“As I’ve always said when I’ve been asked about Sir Jim Ratcliffe, it’s just a matter of time before he’s announced by Man United,” he stated in his Daily Briefing for CaughtOffside. “It’s just a matter of time.”
Due to the fact that they have altered their plans approximately ten times in the past two months, I am unable to determine the day; thus, it is best to wait for the statement.
Documents are being finalized by attorneys, and everything is going to turn out well; we are actually in the closing stages of this process.
Despite the fact that hearing that news will be a pleasant experience, it does not appear that it will alter United’s transfer plans for the January window.
Despite this, Romano continued, “I continue to believe that the January window for United will be about opportunities in any case, and there will be no big stars or big names.”
