Manchester United have been in the news a lot lately, with a potential takeover, contact made with Harry Kane, an apology from Luke Shaw, and a race to sign Victor Osimhen. Here’s the latest on all the news surrounding the Red Devils.
Takeover Latest Update
The potential takeover of Manchester United by the Saudi Arabian-backed consortium is still ongoing, with the Premier League yet to make a decision on the matter. The consortium, which is led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, is reportedly offering £3.8 billion for the club.
The Premier League has been investigating the consortium’s links to the Saudi government, as well as the human rights record of the country. The league is also looking into the potential for piracy of Premier League matches in the country.
The takeover is still ongoing, and it is unclear when a decision will be made.
