Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani made a number of bids to complete a 100% takeover of Man United in a takeover saga that has spanned the entirety of 2023 so far. But after his last-ditch attempt to complete a full takeover from the Glazers failed, the Qatari businessman formally withdrew his proposal over the weekend.

The Glazers had been holding out for a £6billion offer for the club, which would have made Man United the most expensive sports club in history. INEOS chief executive Ratcliffe was previously credited with a full takeover of his boyhood club but is now looking to purchase an initial 25% stake in the club.
