Manchester United are on the market. Rich people who wanted to buy lined up.
Among them, it is worth paying attention to Qatar. The British media ‘Daily Mail’ said on the 8th (Korean time), “Qatari investors will jump into Man Utd bidding in the next few days. They are confident that they can blow away any rivals. Man Utd will receive huge offers from Qatari investors. “he said.
Manchester United’s move to sell the club has already been known since last year. The club’s owners, the Glazer family, decided that now was the right time to sell the club. There was a story that they wanted at least £6 billion (9.96 trillion won) for the acquisition amount.
In addition, it could cost an additional £2 billion (about 3.33 trillion won) to repair and rebuild the home stadium, Old Trafford. If you don’t have enough money, you can’t go out to take over Manchester United.
But Qatar is a different story. He made a fortune with oil money.
You can tell just by looking at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, which ended last year. Money is not an issue in front of Qatar.
Qatar in particular has a lot of interest in sports recently. Because oil doesn’t last forever. Recently, as the world is focusing on eco-friendly energy, a new source of revenue besides oil is needed. Qatar is trying to dig a gold mine in sports.
Last year, the World Cup was held, and next year, the 2023 AFC (Asian Football Confederation) Asian Cup will be held. In addition, he does not spare huge investments in sports regardless of sports.
The Qatar sovereign wealth fund has already acquired PSG (Paris Saint-Germain) and embraced Lionel Messi, Kylian Mbappe and Neymar. It is one of the richest clubs in the world.
The Qatari investors who jumped into the Manchester United bid are not officials from the sovereign wealth fund. ‘Daily Mail’ said, “Qatari investors have considerable financial power. They are also serious about taking over Manchester United. They want to take over the entire club, not just a small number of shares.” 카지노
Man United fans are in a welcoming mood. In the meantime, dissatisfaction with the Glazer family, the owner of the club, has been rampant. It was pointed out that investment in the team was passive and focused only on making money.
If money from Qatar comes in, worries about recruiting players will disappear. Manchester United fans have carefully watched what changes have been made to Manchester City, which Mansour from the UAE (United Arab Emirates) bought, and Newcastle United, which Saudi Arabia bought by a sovereign wealth fund.
