The future ownership of Manchester United has become a hot topic among passionate fans as they implore the Glazer family to sell the club to Sheikh Jassim. With the takeover saga unfolding, the Qatari billionaire has set a Friday deadline, making it clear that he may withdraw from the process if he doesn’t receive adequate encouragement. United supporters are fervently voicing their opposition to such an outcome, taking to social media platforms to make their feelings known.
The Glazers, who have held control over the club since their takeover in 2005, confirmed their willingness to explore potential sale opportunities back in November. However, the situation has yet to be resolved, leaving fans in a state of uncertainty.
Earlier this week, Sheikh Jassim presented his fifth bid for Manchester United, accompanied by a firm Friday deadline. This development has further intensified the desire of many fans to see the Qatari billionaire take charge, particularly given Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s proposal, which involves the Glazers remaining as part of his own takeover plan. Supporters on Twitter have united their voices, passionately urging the Glazers to accept Sheikh Jassim’s bid. “@MUFCMo_” tweeted, “Today’s the last day they’re going to wait for an answer glazers sell ffs… I don’t want to see my team in a top 4 battle anymore. Sheikh Jassim is the ANSWER.”
User “@Daniels_tweets” declared, “It is clear, majority of United fans wants Sheikh Jassim to takeover Manchester United. Glazers, make us happy this time we won’t forget it. Accept the bid.” Meanwhile, “@iammuhoro” stated, “The Glazers should sell the club to Sheikh Jassim.” Others echoed these sentiments, emphasizing their hopes for a positive outcome. “@totalfootyworld” urged, “Todays the day sell up Glazers to Sheikh Jassim so many Man Utd fans want it you have to accept and sell up today #SheikhJassim.”
While the Glazers’ decision remains uncertain, the possibility of Ratcliffe’s involvement cannot be dismissed as the clock ticks down. The family’s openness to selling the club was confirmed in November, shortly after facing criticism from Cristiano Ronaldo during an interview with Piers Morgan. The coming days will reveal whether the Glazers will heed the fervent pleas of Manchester United fans or choose an alternative path for the club’s future.
