Manchester United are preparing for the start of pre-season ahead of next season's Premier League campaign. The situations within the club seem stable in sporting matters and Erik ten Hag is looking to sign a world class star to face the European commitments.

In the meantime, there will be departures that could hit the fans hard. Above all, that of Jadon Sancho, who was considered a youth player with the potential to be a top player and, now, could leave through the back door and to a less important team than his fame thought he deserved it.

United's owners, the Glazer family, have a big intention to sell the club. Despite what several former players have said about their handling of the club, they are regarded as historic and saved the club at a very difficult time.

There are two big buyers for this great club. The first is Jim Ratcliffe, owner of the INEOS company, who has been told that Old Trafford will not be sold for less than £6 billion. But the other buyer would set an ultimatum after the Glazers' indecision to sell quickly.

What is the ultimatum given to United?

Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani made the last offer to buy Manchester United. This one does not reach the established price, but it will be the final one from the Qatari businessman who will not wait any longer and will not contact the Glazers any more, so he would have to accept Ratcliffe's offer, who is already negotiating with an English bank.
