Man Utd takeover LIVE: World record bid submitted by deadline – latest updates

Manchester United received at least two bids to buy the club by tonight’s 9pm deadline, in what is a crucial stage of the takeover saga.

Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani is submitted a world record bid for the club after a delegation visited Old Trafford for talks last week, while British petrochemicals billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe has also put forward an improved, second offer.

The Glazers, who bought Manchester United for £790m in 2005 and saddled the club with debt, want around £6bn, which would be a record fee for a football club. While the Americans are keen to sell, it is thought they remain open to the idea of selling only a minority stake in United and retaining control, at a time when performances on the pitch are improving under new manager Erik ten Hag and the outlook is more positive than it has been for many years.
