According to Mohammed Saeed Alkaabi, a Qatari journalist who we have spoken exclusively to for more details on the story, the reason that QSI has pulled out of the Liverpool deal is because they do not want a minority stake in the club.
The journalist has today tweeted that after FSG failed to give more than 49% of Liverpool attention turned to Manchester United. ‘Very simple steps to announce the acquisition of Manchester United.’

The Times have just reported that “Manchester United hope to be under new ownership before Easter, with a bid from Qatar due to land tomorrow as well as offers from a number of other serious bidders.”
