Report: Manchester United Takeover 'Further Down The Track' Than Liverpool's

By Neil Andrew,


Both clubs were put up for sale by their owners at the end of last year.

Manchester United's takeover is further advanced than that of rivals Liverpool, according to a report.

Fenway Sports Group (FSG) were first to announce in November that they were open to selling the Merseyside club or taking in new investment and appointed Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to assist with the process.

It was a similar story just after at Old Trafford with the Red Devils' owners, the Glazer family, also announcing that they were open to a full sale of the club.

Speculation has been rife ever since regarding what the future might look like for the Premier League giants under new ownership with no concrete news on the potential outcome.

The Daily Mail reports however that United's takeover is 'understood to be much further down the track – and to have attracted far higher indicative bids'.

Jim Ratcliffe appears to be the front-runner for a takeover at Old Trafford but the outlet also reports interest in both clubs from PSG's owners, Qatar Sports Investments (QSI).

An asking price for United however of £6billion to £8billion could deter any potential suitors according to the report.

As the story continues to rumble, supporters at both clubs are looking for clarity, sooner rather than later.
