Qatar threatens to pull out of Manchester United takeover

Qatar ameaça desistir da aquisição do Manchester United

Group led by Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani has reportedly already warned that it does not intend to buy the club "at any cost"..

The Qatari group, led by Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, is beginning to lose patience with the delay in completing the takeover process of Manchester United, in which it is the only candidate, along with Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

The British TV station Sky Sportsquoted by Notícias ao Minuto, said this Thursday that the consortium has even threatened to leave the negotiating table if the Glazer family, which has owned the club since 2005, does not significantly reduce the demands.

The Qataris have put a concrete offer of £4.5 billion (5.1 billion euros) on the table, while the Americans value the Red Devils at around £6 billion (6.8 million euros).

In this sense, the group has already made it known that, although it maintains its interest, it does not intend to close the deal "at any cost", and has already stressed that it will not accept being "manipulated to the point of bidding against itself" in this process.
