In November 2022, Manchester United fans received the news they had been waiting so long for. The Glazer family announced that they were ‘commencing a process to explore strategic alternatives’ for the club, effectively stating they were open to potential buyers or investors.
However, fast forward 11 months later, fans are still left confused and angered by their owner’s actions. Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim has just revealed that he has withdrawn from the sale process, sparking plans for another large protest in the near future. Instead, it seems a deal for INEOS CEO Sir Jim Ratcliffe to purchase a 25% stake in the club is now in place.
