Will MBS buy Manchester United? All the English press has spoken about it while Saudi Arabia has denied it all.
According to our information, Mohammed ben Salmane made a wonderful offer to Manchester United with the aim of becoming the main shareholder of the English club. “After the Khashoggi affair, MBS needs to restore its image to public opinion. Redeveloping a brand image through sport is part of this approach,” a well-informed source said. But Manchester has not yet given an answer to MBS who must take his trouble.
Recall that the Saudi Minister of Information had denied the information on the acquisition of the English club by Crown Prince Mohammed ben Salmane.
“This is incorrect information. Manchester did hold a meeting with the Saudi Public Investment Fund, but only to discuss a sponsorship project,” Turki Al-Shabanah said.
For its part the British daily, The Sun, had assured that MBS was preparing to pay 3.8 billion pounds (4 billion euros) to convince the American owners, The Glazers, to give him the Red Devils.
