Figures within the British media have claimed that the Manchester United sale process has not concluded yet concluded.

On Monday evening, news broke from Qatari media claiming that the sale of Manchester United has been completed, with Sheikh Jassim’s bid being the successful one.

It was said that he had beaten Sir Jim Ratcliffe – who has made alternative plans should his bid fail – in acquiring the Manchester-based club.

Monday night even went as far as Sheikh Jassim being congratulated on his alleged successful bid by fellow Qatari businessman Zaid Al-Hamdan, who has social media connections with the Sheikh’s family.

However, the following morning has seen multiple British-based journalists claim that the process has not yet been concluded.

Ben Jacobs tweeted in the earlier hours of Tuesday morning that as of Monday evening, neither Ratcliffe nor the Sheikh had been informed that either bid had been accepted.

Further to this, Simon Stone of the BBC stated that sources involved in the sale process have “played down the accuracy” of reports claiming Sheikh Jassim had his bid accepted.

An announcement of the conclusion of the sale process has been described as ‘imminent’.
