Saudi Arabia’s planned takeover of Manchester United is on, it has been revealed.
Reports has it that Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman is preparing a sensational £4billion bid to buy Manchester United.
The oil-rich Saudi Arabian – worth a staggering £850bn – is hoping to meet United owners Joel and Avram Glazer in the Middle East in the next couple of weeks.
Avram Glazer had been due to fly to Riyadh this week where he was due to attend an International Forum but he is believed to have pulled out of the engagement.
United’s co-owners know that they will have to tread carefully as the Crown Prince is embroiled in a tense diplomatic row over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
But Bin Salman will not be put off his bid to take control at Old Trafford, although the Glazers are likely to want a solution to his personal problems before entering into any sort of dialogue.
The Glazer family, who bought United in 2005, will bank a massive profit of £2.2bn if a deal is done.
