Amid the backdrop of the Glazers searching for a partner to buy back MU, wealthy individuals in Qatar are ready to “blow away” any competitors for this historical deal.
In the mid-4th quarter of 2022, under immense pressure from Manchester United fans, the Glazers were forced to sell their football club.
Until now, there have been many parties participating in the race to own the world’s richest football club. However, the most notable must be the top forces from Qatar, who have elevated PSG to a global level beyond France.
However, some opinions have expressed concerns that owning Paris Saint-Germain would prevent Middle Eastern owners from purchasing Manchester United (according to UEFA regulations). Nevertheless, recent reports from the Daily Mail indicate that this is not the case.
Specifically, the owner of PSG is the Qatar Sports Investment Fund (QSI). On the other hand, the entity bidding to buy back the Old Trafford owners is the parent company of QSI, the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA). That is why this investment group appears to be very confident about the legal constraints imposed by the European Football Association.
In simple terms, if QIA were to own Manchester United, the team of Coach Erik ten Hag would immediately become “brothers” with PSG. And naturally, what the Qatari owners can invest in the Red Devils could be even more massive than what the Parisian club has received in the past.
Along with this news, the QIA also appeared confident that they would win the ownership race of MU. Some sources from the Middle East even claimed that Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani (the largest owner of QIA) would “blow away” any competing forces for the Red Devils with his powerful financial power.
In addition, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani is currently the head of the military regime in Qatar and is also a loyal fan of Manchester United. He is well aware of the history of the Red Devils and has a great love for this team.
