PSG chairman tries to help Qatar billionaire buy Man United

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi is reportedly playing a part in Sheikh Jassim’s bid for Manchester United. Sheikh Jassim is currently locked in negotiations with the Glazer family over acquiring a majority stake in the Premier League club. Al-Khelaifi and Sheikh Jassim are both from the Middle Eastern nation of Qatar.

British billionaire also negotiating for club

Nevertheless, Sheikh Jassim is not the other billionaire to officially bid for United. British businessman Sir Jim Ratcliffe has also offered to purchase the club. Ratcliffe’s bid, however, is significantly different to Sheikh Jassim’s.

Although current ownership receive less money up front, they would still be involved with the club. Ratcliffe’s offer will generate more money in the long-term for the Glazers.
