Qatar’s Sheikh Jassim has announced he’s NOT buying Man United

Sheikh Jassim eyeing Premier League rivals if Man United deal isn’t done soon. It seems that the Glazer family are continuing to play a very dangerous game with regards to the ownership of Man United.

Since the first announcement of the potential sale, seven months have gone, and there still doesn’t seem to be a solution to what has grown to be a contentious subject for everyone involved with the club.

Erik ten Hag can’t truly know how much money he has to spend on the Red Devils’ transfers since he doesn’t know who the new owners will be or even whether they will be in place before the start of the new season.

If nothing changes, it’s probable that the Dutchman won’t be able to attract their desired targets, which would only set the club back.

It’s a highly unsatisfactory situation and one of the bidders for the club, Sheikh Jassim, will look to purchase one of United’s rivals if things don’t end up getting sorted quickly.

“They (Nine Two Foundation) want the Premier League footprint,” ESPN reporter, Mark Ogden, told The United Stand (h/t

“Somebody told me recently, they said that if the Qataris don’t buy Man United, they’ll be back and they might end up buying Tottenham.

“He said, look, if you’ve got Manchester City owned by Abu Dhabi, you’ve got Newcastle owned by Saudi Arabia, if Qataris maybe buy Tottenham, then you’ve got three clubs who can pull away.”

Though this would, theoretically still leave Sir Jim Ratcliffe in the race to buy the club, and in that sense there’s still possibilities for the Glazers to walk away, the way that this whole business is being conducted is not in keeping with such a storied football club.

Time will tell if Sheikh Jassim ultimately decides to tempt ENIC into selling the White Hart Lane outfit, and if so, it would surely keep Harry Kane at the club for the rest of his career.
