Manchester United fans were in a state of meltdown on Saturday night when it emerged that the Glazers may well pull the club off the market.

The American family, according to the Daily Mail’s report, believed that the value of the club could increase to around £10 billion.

Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe have lodged bids for the club of around £5 billion but the American family are seemingly eager for more money.

United fans have become gradually more and more upset with the actions of the Glazer family, who were supposedly set to sell the club before the end of April.

What’s the latest with the takeover

According to Matt Lawton, from The Times, both parties, Jassim and Ratcliffe, remain unaware of any change of opinion from the family about selling the club.

As well as this, the report states that the two parties have had contact with the American family as recently as last week, so that would suggest that the sale is still on.

Mike Keegan, from the Daily Mail, also backs up the report and says that, despite the record drop of 21% to United’s share price, negotiations continue for the sale of the club.

Recent talks aimed at bridging gap

According to the Mail’s report, these talks, which have taken place recently, are centered around just how can the two bidders bridge the gap from their offer to the Glazer family’s valuation of the club.

There have been protests from United as recently as the Nottingham Forest win, which included a sit-in following the full-time whistle.

Whether an end to the ongoing sale process is in sight remains to be seen.

The Red Devils announced they were exploring strategic alternatives for the club but nearly 11 months later, nothing has changed in this process.
