Champions League qualification won’t impact Manchester United takeover bids

Manchester United’s takeover bids will not be impacted by Champions League qualification, reports The Athletic.

The Red Devils have lost their last two Premier League games, which could impact their chances of finishing in the top four.

Man United are fourth in the table with four games left, but Liverpool are just a point behind them.

While Erik ten Hag’s men have a game in hand, they could miss out on the Champions League places if they do not improve.

They face Wolverhampton Wanderers, Bournemouth, Chelsea and Fulham in their remaining fixtures and may need to win them all to play in Europe’s elite competition next term.

However, failure to finish in the top four will not affect the bids to buy the club.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim’s bids and their values are not contingent on Man United’s final league position.

Both tabled their third offers to buy the Old Trafford club on April 28 and are waiting for a response.

The Glazer family value the club at £6 billion, but neither of the duo met their asking price.

It remains to be seen what their final decision will be, but there is a belief a takeover is on the cards.

Missing out on the Champions League would be a big blow for Man United.

Apart from the money on offer, their chances of attracting the biggest players on the planet would also be dealt a blow.

The narrow 1-0 losses to Brighton & Hove Albion and West Ham United could prove costly.

Nevertheless, they will fancy their chances of bouncing back against Wolves on Saturday.

Man United need to make quality signings this summer, and their final league position could impact how they fare in the transfer market.
