Qatari Businessman Keen On Buying Man U

Qatari businessman Sheikh Jassim remains committed to buying 100 percent of Manchester United, according to a source, while British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe is considering an offer to purchase only a minority stake.

Ratcliffe, through his chemical company INEOS, has offered to buy a majority shareholding in the Premier League club but a change of approach is being considered after a process which has already lasted more than 10 months.

United owners, the Glazer family, announced last November that they would look at “strategic alternatives”, but multiple sources have told ESPN that there remain doubts about whether they intend to sell.
