- Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia is reportedly interested in taking over as United’s new owner.
- Ideally, he would prefer to finalise the deal before the start of the next season.
- Bin Salman is ready to offer the Glazers a whopping £3.8 billion.
According to the Sun, a not always reliable British source, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman has stepped up his interest in taking over at United. As per Sun journalist John Hutchinson, the billionaire is willing to offer United’s current owners £3.8 billion.
While United’s American owners have never expressed their interest to sell the club, the latest offer might too good to turn down. Should the Glazers accept Bil Salman’s deal, they would be left with a whopping £2.2 billion in profit.
The family of American investors purchased the club in 2005 for £790m. Since then, the club’s market value has soared up to from £3bn to £4bn which makes United the most valuable club in the world.
Bin Salman’s interest in buying United was first reported back in October by various outlets, although the rumours quickly died out. Sky Sports said that the Glazers were not interested in selling the club.
