Take this with a pinch of salt and shit all over my post if you wish as it may be complete bollocks…there’s a guy on tiktok who’s been doing videos in the last couple of weeks on the sale. He claims to have a contact who’s very closely involved in the takeover.

Anyway, long story short he’s made a few ITK claims recently, in particular the fact Sheikh Jassim was going to put a 4th bid in. He reported it was happening a day or so before any news broke which is where people have started giving him credibility.

Anywayyy, the same guy is claiming the deal with Sheikh Jassim is done and the Glazers have even gone as far as asking the Sheikh if they can use some of his investment money to put towards transfers right now.

He’s not revealed who his contact is til now but has said today it’s someone on the Qatar side. Anyway, interested to see if it’s true or complete bollocks. He claims that’s what’s going to be revealed this week.
Link the profile if you can mate I like listening to the rumours and speculation

Muppetiers JRoades suggesting that tomorrow we might get actual concrete news in his latest video and a lot is going on behind the scenes regarding transfers.

Make of it what you will

Is he that American person who pretends he has sources linked to the club? Doesn't he predict transfers and then delete it when it doesn't turn out to be true?

I remember The Muppets on Reddit back when we were signing Dybala. I was banned from their sub for saying that they're frauds.

Logic suggests:

If it is the case, it’s SJR and the Glazers are still involved and forward planning with him.

If it’s SJ and a full sale they will be holding off and leaving transfer to the incoming admin.

Even more logical is Muppetiers not knowing shit and everyone is jumping on the “UCL qualification will change things” bandwagon.

I wouldn’t be surprised if we qualify for Europe and then it’s still two weeks before anything else happens.

The Star is one rung above the daily sport, which, to be fair, had it's uses. Not for news, that was drivel, but it had other attributes worth 'reading'.
Ah the Daily sport problem page, right up there with literal classics such as Wuthering heights, To kill a mocking bird, War and peace and the magnificent and critically acclaimed The very hungry caterpillar.

Miss reading that on the bog at work, man! life was good back then.

Qatar would focus purely on signing massive global stars without any thought as to how they would fit in the team. There has been plenty of evidence of that over at Chelsea since 2003.
The Chelsea that has won more trophies than Utd since 2003 you mean?

I see Ineos are on track to win the Giro this year, with G leading the race at the age of 37! Looks like Ratty could be celebrating his first major sporting success by buying himself the biggest football club in the world.

Mostly non British cyclists too for all the people thinking he would only buy English players at United

You could argue we are a British enterprise though? I wouldn't personally describe us in that way and would also argue that our identity (without sounding too scouse) is very much based around Mancunian culture rather than England/Britain. Its that element of rebellion and things like disobeying the Fa in the 1950s to enter the European Cup that made people either fall in love with us or absolutely despise us.

Regardless, I don't think that Ratcliffe's opinion/vision of us a 'British enterprise' will get in the way of us signing a few foreign players. There's literally no evidence that it would. You could equally chuck another random claim in the air that Qatar would focus purely on signing massive global stars without any thought as to how they would fit in the team. There has been plenty of evidence of that over at Chelsea since 2003.
I would say nearly all the Premiership teams are global enterprises now. When I strem Utd games and its an American or Canadian stream they show the fans with their kits scarves etc on and every team we play has now got supporters from there.

JRoades doing his usual trick nothing to see here.

Big breaking news in normal papers etc followed JRoades chiming in “aligns with what I have heard but didn’t want to say anything”.

Incredible.

But you said that Zeechan, a lying loser, has "some connections". So you have no right to criticise anyone for using despicable sources.

The Mail is famous for one thing: supporting the nazis almost to the day Hitler invaded Poland

He closed his reddit sub because me and a few others kept calling him out, especially when he started a patreon, youtube and discord to monetise his BS. There is some guy called mr_executive who claims it's a done deal with Qatar

Glazers to wait until we play our first fixture in the CL, to announce just to make sure we don't miss out
