The developments for the sale of Manchester United have gone quiet in recent weeks, however, there are expected to be movements soon.

The Glazer family announced their intention to ‘explore strategic alternatives’, including a takeover of Manchester United, back in November 2022.

In the almost eight months since then, there have emerged two frontrunners to purchase the club in the form of Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim. However, after the Qatari’s tabled a fifth and final bid at the beginning of June, it has been radio silence.

The original idea was to have new owners already in place by now, that plan has not worked whatsoever and reports have stated that the Glazers will still be at Old Trafford by the time United play Wolves on the first game of next season’s Premier League.

However, it has been stated by Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol that there will be movements in regard to the takeover after the club return to the United Kingdom following their pre-season tour.

“It’s gone very quiet but there are expected to be developments on the potential sale of Manchester United after the team returns from their pre-season tour of the United States next week,” he said.

Many fans have been frustrated with the way that the takeover process has gone. United would ideally have new owners for the transfer market but things have dragged on.

For all the glazers have done wrong at the club since taking over in 2005, some believed they would do the first positive thing in their tenure and leave at the proposed time. Instead, they are looking for more and more money. Are we surprised?

Ten Hag has also suggested that the owners have not been working hard to bring in a new striker.

It’s a position that United need and they are targeting Rasmus Højlund, however, reports have only stated that he could be in the door for the opening Premier League fixture and not before.
