The Journalist also suggested that his 25 percent investment by the British Billionaire is unlikely to be announced after United’s board meeting on Thursday.

Journalist discussed the matter and said :-

“I would be surprised if there’s any announcement [on Thursday] about Jim Ratcliffe buying 25 per cent of Manchester United.

“Having said that what we do know is that this strategic review started in November last year and has been going on since then.

“We know that Sheikh Jassim of Qatar wanted to buy 100 per cent of Manchester United.

“Over the weekend he dropped out. He’s withdrawn his offer and that means that Jim Ratcliffe is now the favourite to buy a stake in Manchester United.

“I think there’s other people who want to buy Manchester United stakes as well, but he is the one that I think the Glazer family are ready to do a deal with.”

“It’s just that I don’t expect the deal to be announced on Thursday.”

Journalist claims Sheikh Jassim are out of the race

After Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s takeover, Qatari Banker Sheikh Jassim has decided to move out of the race to buy Manchester United.

Hence ESPN journalist Rob Dawson discussed the matter and posted X :-

“Sheikh Jassim and his team are not commenting officially. But have informed the Glazers and Raine that they have withdrawn from the process.

“Negotiations have taken place in recent days and feeling is that the Glazers’ valuation of the club is unrealistic.”

United’s future still hangs at the middle and only time tell their fortunes currently.
