Another ‘oil money’ from Qatar joined the takeover of Manchester United.
The British Daily Mail reported on the 8th (Korean time) that ‘Qatar’s individual investors jumped into the bid to take over Man Utd with the successful hosting of the World Cup,’ and ‘They promised a huge investment to manager Eric Ten Hag so that Man Utd can rise to the top again. ‘ reported.
The Glazers put Manchester United on the market in November last year. Bidding deadline is mid-February. The acquisition amount is being formed around £6 billion (approximately KRW 9.1 trillion).
Qatari investors are said to be a different group than Qatar Sports Investments (QSI), the Qatari sovereign wealth fund that owns Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). To ensure fair competition, the European Football Federation (UEFA) stipulates that no organization can own more than one club.
Qatar Investment Group is aiming for a full acquisition, not a partial purchase, of Manchester United’s stake. 안전놀이터 A source told the Daily Mail: “Qatari investors have significant funds available. They are very serious about the Manchester United deal and are confident it will be the strongest bid.”
If Qatari capital acquires Man Utd, it will build a ‘triangular oil money rival’ with Man City in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Newcastle in Saudi Arabia.
However, even if the Qatari capital succeeds in bidding, Premier League approval is required. The acquisition may be put on hold due to human rights issues raised during the World Cup.
