According to the report, a specific date has been established for Sheikh Jassim to assume control.

Importantly, the controversial Glazer family will not retain any ownership stake in the club moving forward.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a prominent British billionaire, had been Sheikh Jassim’s primary competition in the bidding.

However, sources suggest that Ratcliffe’s proposal would have allowed the Glazers to maintain partial ownership of the club.

In contrast, Sheikh Jassim is set to execute a complete takeover of Manchester United.

His plans reportedly encompass investments in the team’s stadium and infrastructure, coupled with enhancements to the first-team roster.

The much-anticipated announcement of the acquisition could materialize as early as next month, signalling the dawn of a potentially successful new chapter for Manchester United.
