Saudi Prince steps up £3.8bn Man Utd takeover in bid

Sun Feb 17, 2019 2:59 pm

I really hope this is just another Dracula story that will need a stake through its heart before it is really dead.

The Sun has yet again dusted off this story. No sources are given and the only real difference to the October version is the amount and now the sale in contingent on United getting into the Champions League next season. Working on the premise that repeating a story enough times will make it the truth, The Mail, Fox Sports and a host of other quickly regurgitate the story using The Sun as their source.

While I would be super happy if the Glazers did sell, I do not want Mohammad bin Salman anywhere near the club. However; this is football in the new millennia where money talks and everything else takes a back seat. At the beat of times I am a very cynical person, but really; does anyone think that the Premier League’s Statement of Principles would stop Mohammad bin Salman from buying his way into the league?

Well they let Abramovich and Mansour buy teams, so I am guessing as long as the check clears.

I think the fit and proper person test is a test of if a person is alive or not.

fornicate the Glazers, but fornicate that birth canal even more.

I don't know he is a billionaire, linked to the Western World. Some controversy around him. I don't think the glazes are going to give the money we need.

If they get that 4 billion I think they will sell.

I hope this is some form of cheap entertainment. Shiek Bin Salman.....Mourinho will go missing if he were to speak ill of Manutd.

I sincerely hope this story is just clickbait, but realistically if we are ever going to get rid of the Glazers then it will have to be an entity like bin Salman who can afford it.

I think he's a great bloke :whistle:

Tiger Squad

Bin Salman has reportedly created the Tiger Squad, a team of assassins that act as a death squad, to target Saudi critics inside and outside Saudi Arabia.

All totally denied by bin Salman and he would never tell a lie would he?
That said why would the Glazers sell.
There is a lot more than £3 or £4 billion pounds to be milked out of this cash cow in the relatively near future and the club will still have a massive residual value left no matter where we end up
Both Ed Woodward and Richard Arnold keep telling you success is not entirely linked to profit with this club
This rumour came about because Richard Arnold has spent a significant amount of time in Saudi recently
It apparently is all to do with United getting massive commercial deals out of Saudi

So enough about the Glazers
How do you feel about massive sponsorship from the Saudi Royal family who control all the significant business ventures in the kingdom

LOL, the Saudi Mafia. I don't know what is fact from fiction with this news.

But yes the glazers are shrewd businessmen. The focus buy the right players to suite the Man Utd style.

The Saudi media minister is now saying:
Turki al-Shabanah wrote:"Reports claiming that HRH the Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman intends on buying Manchester United are completely false,"


I have to wonder which side (the Glazers or the Saudi's - a tag team right out of Hades) floated this balloon.

I just read an article saying this isn't happening, it was all discussions about advertising. But the article said as of last summer United is valued at just shy of $5 billion US, (I think it was 3.7 billion pounds). At that value is anyone, ever, going to be able to rescue the club from the glazers?

According to the NYSE listing Manchester United PLC - MANU - has ~164.5M shares outstanding, at Fridays closing price of $19.50 that put their Market Capitalization at $3.21B, it pays a 0.92% yield ($0.18 dividend) and the 52-week range is $16.91 (12/10 about when they fired Mourinho) - 27.70 (8/31 about the start of the season) . A 0.92% yield is not investment quality, in fact it is less than most pass book account are generating.

The price performance for the prior 52 weeks is calculated at +0.52% compared to +10.02% for its Industry, the price earnings estimate for this FY is 105.36 compared to the industry of 22.6. The analyst short term sentiment (2 weeks to 6 weeks) for the stock is strong, while the mid-term & long-term sentiments (6 weeks - 2 years) are weak. The bottom line is that this is not a very good investment for the average person, MANU is generally referred to as a vanity stock, and anyone looking to buy United would not be doing so as an investment.

The Glazers say they ain't selling.

As a Trump fan, surely you understand comments like that should be taken with a grain of salt
