Manchester United summer transfer window faces uncertainty due to slow takeover process

Manchester United face uncertainty heading into the summer transfer window, with the slow takeover process set to cause delays, according to the Daily Mail.

United’s owners, the Glazer family, have been trying to sell the club, but the process is dragging on.

The Glazers have reportedly invited Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani to submit a third bid for the club.

Both men have made two offers that saw them speak to the club executives to find out the sporting and financial situation of the club.

Ratcliffe and Hamad Al Thani have stated their plans to buy the club.

There is also a possibility that Man United will accept a minority investor at the club.

The process has taken too long and may hamper the club’s summer transfer activity.

United planned to move for Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham.

They will struggle to convince the Englishman to join them if they cannot get the sale through immediately and start planning for the summer.

Man United are already behind rivals Manchester City in the race for Bellingham. They have to accelerate the sale of the club and move fast if they want to sign the 19-year-old.

The Red Devils also need to sign a striker, with Wout Weghorst set to return to Burnley this June.

The club have set April 28 as the deadline for the third round of bids. However, even if they accept an offer, they will do more due diligence.

This process will likely eat into the time needed to formulate and make transfer moves ahead of next season.
