      Sky Sports News' Kaveh Solhekol:

      "This is not Qatar buying Manchester United. Qatar Sports Investments own PSG. Will they be allowed to own another football club? I'm being told this has got nothing to do with QSI. This is a private deal. This is somebody who has a lot of money and wants to buy Manchester United."

      I suspect that there will always be links back to the state money within the Middle East states.

      Like you it’s impossible to say categorically and I’m reading the same things as you’re through social media. Thing is this is just the first bid and you know the yanks will obviously/ understandably try and get more, who wouldn’t. I’m just glad it’s looking like the Glazers are all but gone now.

      I know you and a few of your fans are very much against ( Qatari/ oil/ sports washing  )  it and like I’ve said many times fully understand why. I too once had the same opinion as yourself about not wanting a state taking over. Allegedly it’s not a state  ( it’s a banker ) but I take that with a pinch of salt because it’s all hidden in paperwork anyway.

      United fans had ten years of making up the numbers, if this goes through should firmly put us back on the map now that we have a manager that’s looking capable of matching  Klopp & Pep.

      Not counting any chickens but by Christ it’s the best I’ve felt in ten years as a supporter. Obviously many rival fans will jump on the bang waggon calling many hypocrites and understandably so. I said a while ago, if you can’t beat them join erm. Sadly that’s the way football is going.

      I think if this goes through Liverpool may well be the next club to follow. I know you hate the idea and said you’d walk but if you don’t chances are the season your having will become a regular thing.

      You have outspent us constantly over the last ten years whilst you have been dragging behind

      It’s not about spending money - bringing more money in doesn’t change that


      I wonder how many Man Utd fans jumped on the train going at City for all their cheating and state backed and now wanting to be a part of that


      If you want your club to be state owned just so that it can spend more money then away you go

      It won’t happen with us


      Money doesn’t always bring success and your manager has won sweet fa so far

      All I have heard off Mancs for last few years has been slating City for their wealth and where it comes from . The fickleness is so prevalent now . In the wilderness,  lacked funding some.old.chestnuts despite the fact they have spent more than anyone . Couldn't make it up

      Pretty sure every fan from every club at some time had a pop at city ( including myself ) but if this goes through we’re not state owned  ;D ( if you believe what you read )

      As for not happening to us? That’s probably more wishful thinking on your side than anything else, time will tell.

      I agree it’s no better than city and not saying words to the contrary. It still won’t take that smile off my face if it happens. Our history still intact (to date) as is yours if you become a state owned club.

      Yes I have but then I haven't celebrated getting the exact same ie fickle Keith . As we don't have an owner from there so not sure how you can argue my point. If any fan from any club slags ownership but than welcomes exact same they are in the same boat fickle. Two faced whatever

      If the offers are similar surely United choose Jim Ratcliffe to avoid the hassle?

      Let the footballing whores battle it out.
      Chelsea and city have ruined football in this country.
      PSG have ruined France.

      If we or united and Newcastle join them it will be a travesty in my eyes. No sporting merit. It’s not all about winning, it’s about how you win.

      I’m of the opinion Liverpool will follow. Thing is as fans we don’t really have a say anyway. We go with it or we don’t, the corporates don’t give a fcuk.

      Like we’ve said before, sadly it’s the new norm. If you want to Lag behind and stay a also ran fine. I’ve done that for the last ten years and it isn’t nice.

      But you have spent more than every other club Keith you have lagged behind due to sh*te managers and recruitment had nothing to do with the owners you had. Yes you can argue your ground falling apart and training facilties but the top and bottom of it you have lagged behind due to points above
