Nearly eight months after the Glazer’s family expressed its intention to sell Manchester United, the situation hasn’t arrived to a conclusion yet. However, the Glazer’s announcement about the new owner could be closer than ever, as in the last few hours, one of the candidates has appeared as the possible fortunate to win the race, while the coach Erik Ten Hag continues struggling to sign the elite players he desires in the transfer market window.

Despite Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe's offers seem tempting for the Glazers, Sheikh Jassim's offer is to buy 100 per cent of the Red Devils, while Sir Jim Ratcliffe's proposal would see the Glazers stick around in a minority capacity over the next few years, fact which could lead to the Qatari offer to a potential win, as in the last few hours the Glazers are worried about the enormous amount of money that supposes the club’s debt, a problem which can be easily solved with Jassim buying the 100 per cent of Manchester United.

In this sense, the Glazers, along with Raine Group, the bank overseeing the process, seem to be close to come to a final decision about the club’s sale. According to Bloomberg, the members of Sheikh Jassim's camp could have started communicating their confidence of victory, considering that an official announcement is just a matter of time.

A video announcement could be close to communicate the United’s decision

Following the Bloomberg sources, an announcement video is being prepared by the Qatari Media, something the Manchester United’s fans are heavily expecting for months and could be close to happen. A potential Qatari project would change everything for the Red Devils, as the Qatar bid would include paying off the gross debt of £725 million at Old Trafford and plotting on the transfer market window with fresh money to lead United to have an elite squad and become one of the main world football actors again.
