Man Utd and Liverpool takeover decisions made by Qatar as clubs outline sale conditions

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi held a meeting with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy over investment but currently has no plans to buy Man Utd or Liverpool.


There are no current plans from Qatar to buy either Manchester United or Liverpool despite an ongoing plan to invest in a Premier League club.


Qatar Sports Investments (QSI), who own Paris Saint-Germain, met with Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy last week in London as they consider buying a minority stake in the North London club. Spurs are on the lookout for more investment with Levy facing growing discontent from Spurs fans.


It emerged in November that Liverpool’s American owners are keen to sell the club and have put together a full presentation for interested parties. They have retained Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to assist with the process of selling as they gauge interest and invite offers.


FSG partner Sam Kennedy told The Boston Globe there has been a “lot of interest” in investing in the Reds. It comes as the Glazer family have subsequently put United up for sale as they look to end their controversial 17-year ownership of the club.


Mirror Footballunderstands the Glazers are looking for as much as £8billion to sell arguably the biggest team in world football – a fee that eclipses the £2.5bn Todd Boehly paid for Chelsea.


However, despite QSI’s keenness for investing in a Premier League club – the Times reports that neither of English football’s biggest clubs are on their radar. This is due to those giants preferring a full sale and change of ownership, which QSI cannot comply with as they own PSG.Avram and Joel Glazer have put Man Utd up for sale

Alongside owning 100 percent of PSG, QSI have a 21.67 percent stake in Portuguese club Braga – widely recognised as the fourth biggest club in the nation – but they are hopeful of becoming minority investors in another European club in continental competition, alongside at least one South American club.


QSI is thought to be owned by the Qatar finance ministry and the Qatar Olympic Committee. Nasser Al-Khelaifi is the chairman of QSI and president of PSG. He publicly confirmed two months ago that he was considering selling a minority share of PSG to new investors. QSI are not interested in a full sale of the club, but an unnamed American investment fund has been linked with buying 15 percent.Nasser Al-Khelaifi is looking to become a minority investor in more clubs amid a partial PSG sale

United said in November that the Glazers would “consider all strategic alternatives, including new investment into the club, a sale, or other transactions”. Avram Glazer is understood to have held talks with Saudi investors during a trip to Qatar for the World Cup last month.

Liverpool, meanwhile, have been the subject of interest from the Middle East before. FSG said in November that “under the right terms and conditions, we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club”.
