The Daily Mail are reporting that Qatari investors are planning an incredible mega-money swoop for Manchester United within the next few days.
According to the report, the investment is coming from a group of private, high-wealth individuals based in the oil-rich state who have set their sights on the club they view as one of ‘football’s crown jewels’. The report further goes on to state that the team behind the investment is confident their bid will blow the competition out of the water.
Naturally, Liverpool fans will be asking what this news means for the club and their supposed interest from Qatar in the shape of the Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) – which is a sovereign fund of the country.
According to the report, the individuals looking to invest in Manchester are different to those who are looking at Liverpool.
Therefore, there is no reason to believe that Liverpool’s potential investment from the QIA is affected at all.
This is further emphasised by a tweet from Alex Miller, who states the same and mentions that QIA are indeed in talks with Liverpool over a potential takeover.

So it seems that both of England’s biggest football clubs may soon be taken over by organisations from Qatar.
