Man United convinced Sheikh Jassim can complete takeover by November

Manchester United are convinced a deal to buy their club can be done by November, according to the Sun.

Talks between the sellers and the representatives of Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al Thani have taken a big leap forward in recent weeks, with a £6 billion sale now close.

The Qataris have been doing due diligence ahead of tabling a final formal bid and are ahead of Sir Jim Ratcliffe in the race to buy Man United.

Sheikh Jassim could complete a full buyout three months into the new season which starts next weekend, and Red Devils supporters will hope it finally happens.

The Glazers put Man United up for sale last November, but there have been no positive updates in recent months as the buyers were waiting for the next line of action after their latest bids were knocked back.

There were recent claims that the takeover is on hold, but it has emerged that the process is still ongoing, and it appears it could be wrapped up before the end of the year.

The Qataris will be subjected to the rigorous Premier League Owners’ and Directors’ test if they are named winners in the race for the club, and it could take several weeks.

Man United have needed new owners for years, and the fans cannot wait to see the back of the Glazers after watching their beloved club gradually lose the ability to compete with Manchester City and co for the Premier League title and Champions League.

The club’s American owners have been in charge since 2005, but they have refused to make much-needed upgrades to Old Trafford, the Carrington training ground and the squad.

A takeover will take Man United to the next level, and they need it if they want to be challenging for major trophies in England and Europe anytime soon.
