Manchester United fans voice their choice for new owners

The supporters of the Red Devils have revealed their preference as the takeover talks accelerate.

Manchester United fans have made their sentiments clear over who they want as the club's new owners with the takeover negotiations nearing its business end. On Friday, Sir Jim Ratcliffe took a tour of Old Trafford, but a significant number of Manchester United fans on social media have expressed their desire for Qatar to acquire the club from the Glazers.

Britain's wealthiest man visited the iconic stadium 24 hours after Qatari businessman Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani and his entourage. As it was, all bidders were given the chance to examine the club's financial situation and potential for growth, as well as discuss the redevelopment of Old Trafford and the training ground as part of the negotiation process.

Reports on Thursday stated that talks between the club, the Raine Group, and Sheikh Jassim's delegation lasted for 10 hours, concluding in the evening and sparking excitement among fans on social media. While the Glazer Family will make the final decision, speculation suggests that the Qataris are leading the bidding war. The news has been widely accepted by supporters on social media, with the majority enthusiastic about the prospect of Qatari ownership.

Meanwhile, Sir Jim Ratcliffe's visit to Old Trafford received less praise from Manchester United fans compared to Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani's entourage due to a recent report by Sky Sports. The report revealed that Ratcliffe was interested in becoming a majority shareholder instead of a full buyout, which is preferred by the Qatar delegation and would result in the end of the Glazer Family's involvement at the club.

On Friday, the INEOS founder was spotted outside Old Trafford meeting chief executive Richard Arnold ahead of the day's tour. It is speculated that he was at the stadium for less than half the number of hours the Qataris spent there. Fans of the club have since taken  to social media to express their views on which deegation they preferred as the new owners ahead of crunch time:
