Manchester United takeover

Sky Sports News' chief reporter Kaveh Solhekol answers questions around a potential Man Utd takeover, including if Qatari interest is rivalling Sir Jim Ratcliffe, how quickly a deal could get done and impact Erik ten Hag's team, and why Liverpool could appeal to investors instead...

Who is interested in buying Manchester United?
Sir Jim Ratcliffe's INEOS group have confirmed they are bidding to buy Manchester United and reports say there is interest from the USA and the Middle East, including Qatar.

However, while there has been interest, I'm being told by one party who are considering making a bid that it hasn't been quite at the level expected and certainly not as much as there was when Chelsea was for sale. Last year there were more than 100 expressions of interest in buying Chelsea - although that was an exceptional case, with a deadline and driven by a global news story and also the aspect of some bidders looking for publicity.

There are likely to have been other potential buyers for United who have contacted The Raine Group - who are orchestrating the sale or invitation for investment on behalf of the Glazers - which we don't know about. They will all have had to sign confidentiality agreements. But there hasn't been the media circus around potential candidates as we saw with Chelsea.

It's also worth noting that the Glazers would potentially just be interested in someone investing in the club, rather than buying it completely. It's well documented they need to redevelop Old Trafford and do some work on their training ground and that could end up costing around £1bn.

Manchester United's share price has doubled on the New York Stock Exchange since the owners effectively put the club up for sale in November.

It has risen another 14 per cent on Wednesday to $24.17 - the biggest rise since late November, while the current share price values the club at £3.2bn.

If bidders from Qatar did come forward, what would be driving their interest?

The Qataris want to build on what they see as the success of the World Cup and one way of doing that is to buy a club in the Premier League or a stake in a club in the Premier League, the biggest, most popular league in the world.

The good news for them is they are spoilt for choice at the moment. Liverpool and Man Utd are effectively for sale and there are lots of other clubs looking for investment. Any Qatari move into the Premier League may also see them buying a minority stake in a club such as Tottenham Hotspur.

The chairman of Qatar Sports Investments - which owns Paris Saint-Germain - Nasser Al-Khelaifi met Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy at the World Cup and in London last month. According to Tottenham, the meetings were not about Qatar buying or investing in the club.

The Qataris are aware that their name could be used to drum up interest from other investors but they are looking for a way into the Premier League market.

Would Qatar Sports Investments' ownership of PSG be an issue?

Al-Khelaifi is also the president of Paris Saint-Germain and the European Club Association and UEFA rules would make it difficult for QSI to own another big European club, although they have recently bought a 21 per cent stake in Portuguese club Braga. If QSI bought Man Utd, for example, they could noy play in the Champions League in the same season as PSG. There are ways around that though.

There are lots of other Qatar-based groups and individuals who could buy Man Utd instead of QSI.

After all the focus ahead of and during the World Cup of human rights issues in Qatar, what would the reaction be if investors from that country bought a Premier League club?

It would be controversial. The country's track record on worker's rights, women's rights and its treatment of the LGBTQ+ community has been criticised over the past few years in the build-up to the World Cup and it would certainly draw media attention again if Qataris were to buy Man Utd.

There would be some supporters who would be delighted by the prospect of owners with near-limitless wealth arriving at Old Trafford but others who would not feel comfortable with them owning their club.

Amnesty International has said the potential Qatari bid should be a "wake-up call" for the Premier League to strengthen its ownership rules but relations between the Qatari and UK governments is good and there wouldn't be an expectation the Premier League would block that type of investment.

How much is Man Utd likely to cost any buyer?

The Glazer family want £6bn for the club - but it is currently valued at £2.9bn on the New York Stock Exchange. That is a significant gap and it is worth noting that even the lower valuation would still be a worldwide record for a football club.

To put those numbers into context, the most-expensive sports team ever sold is the Denver Broncos American Football team, who were sold for £3.75bn last year. Chelsea went for £2.5bn but Newcastle was picked up for £300m - and PSG cost the relatively small amount of £60m in 2011, less than some players are signed for these days!

The feeling among the new Chelsea ownership is that they got a great deal and they'll be watching closely because if Man Utd or Liverpool are sold for over £2.5bn that will reaffirm that belief.

However, will a buyer be prepared to pay as much as £6bn for a club which has a turnover of around £580m, with about 80 per cent of that going on wages? Especially when there is probably around £1bn needed to be spent on improvements to the training ground, stadium and general infrastructure?

When could we expect a deal to go through?

The Raine Group want bids to be in by the middle of February and those offers will then be considered. It could be done before the end of the season but there is no hard or fast deadline, as there was with Chelsea. The deal to buy Chelsea was done in three months, which was extraordinarily quick because it had to be.

If a big bid came in beyond mid-February it wouldn't be turned away either, so there is no rush.
