Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the President of Paris Saint-Germain, has been involved in the Manchester United takeover bid, assisting his fellow Qatari, named Sheikh Jassim, as per reports. It has been said that the Glazer family, who are the current owners of MUFC, have asked the PSG President to make Sheikh Jassim increase his takeover bid. They are looking for £6.4 billion to sell the Red Devils to potential suitors.

As per The Athletic, the involvement of Nasser Al-Khelaifi has raised concerns among some Premier League owners regarding how one more club in the English top flight could find itself under the Middle East state-sponsored ownership. It has also been reported that if Qatari owners end up buying Manchester United, then some clubs in England may call for the authorities to investigate the source of funds for the deal.

Meanwhile, the buyout proceedings for Manchester United have been a witness to constant bids from Sheikh Jassim and Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the billionaire from Great Britain. As of right now, the group headed by Ratcliffe is expected to win the takeover bid for MUFC, but Jassim has also put forth his fifth bid, to get ahead of the competition.

Notably, Manchester United had finished in third place in the Premier League with 75 points, including 23 wins and six draws, to qualify for next season’s UEFA Champions League. They had also won the League Cup and finished as runners-up in the FA Cup, after suffering a heartbreaking 2-1 defeat to neighbours Manchester City. Also, the Red Devils reached the quarter-final stage of the Europa League, which they lost to Sevilla by a margin of 5-2 across home and away legs.
