Man Utd takeover: Qatari Sheikh Jassim submits second bid to buy the club
Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim has joined Ineos owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe in submitting a second bid to buy Manchester United, the BBC reports.
A representative for Sheikh Jassim said on Saturday they put in a revised bid overnight.
On Thursday, Ratcliffe put in his second bid after Wednesday’s confusion and extended deadline.
It followed Finnish entrepreneur Thomas Zilliacus stating he has submitted a bid to buy the Old Trafford club.
Zilliacus wants to buy half of the club with the other half bought by fans, who will be part of club decision-making.
Interested parties had until 21:00 GMT on Wednesday to enter their bids before the deadline was extended.
On Thursday, an Ineos spokesperson said: “Ratcliffe and Ineos can confirm we have submitted a revised bid.”
