Erik ten Hag facing big nightmare scenario with the Glazers considering controversial Man Utd decision

The Glazers are thinking about making a contentious choice that might affect Manchester United’s transfer window.

More than six months after the Glazers disclosed they were looking into “strategic alternatives” for United, there is still no certainty regarding the club’s ownership for the upcoming campaign.

Both Qatari financier Sheikh Jassim and Ineos owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe are vying to become the club’s new owner at Old Trafford, but the Glazer family has not yet made a definitive choice.

The second-richest guy in Britain, Ratcliffe, is apparently the favorite to take over United after submitting an offer to buy a majority stake while supposedly enabling Joel and Avram Glazer to keep ties to the team.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Jassim is said to have offered in the region of £5billion for a 100 per cent stake in United and vowed to clear the club of its debts.

However, the Qatari’s offer is short of the Glazer’s £6billion valuation.

Man Utd sale update

The Glazer family is reportedly considering deferring its decision on whether to sell the team until after the season is over, according to ESPN sources.

Staff members claim that in March they were informed that by the end of the campaign, at the latest, there will be “clarity” regarding the ownership position.

There are reportedly now worries that the Glazers will postpone their choice until after the season is over.

Ten Hag’s transfer goals would likely be impacted by such a choice.The team is particularly interested in bringing in a striker, therefore the Dutchman is aiming for a big summer transfer window.

However, the continued ambiguity surrounding the club’s ownership will probably reflect United’s capacity for bargaining and transfer spending.

According to one ESPN source a reason for the delay is that the Glazers are still trying to come to an agreement about their future with United.

Joel and Avram Glazer are thought to be reluctant to give up their stake.
