Man Utd bidders 'annoyed' and 'frustrated' by lack of progress as summer window fears revealed

Man Utd bidders 'annoyed' and 'frustrated' by lack of progress as summer window fears revealed

Man Utd bidders are being made to wait.

Manchester United bidders are becoming frustrated over a lack of updates on their potential takeovers, a journalist has claimed.

In November, the Glazers sent ripples across the football and financial world by announcing they were exploring “strategic alternatives” for United, which could result in a sale.

And last month Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim and British petrochemicals billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe placed revised bids to purchase the club.

Since, there’s been little news regarding which bid, if any, the Glazer family will accept.

Indeed, a Sports Mail report has even claimed that the Man Utd bidders are “becoming increasingly frustrated” having not had an update since filing their second bid over two weeks ago.

Sports Mail’s Mike Keegan claimed that at one stage, with time thought to be of the essence, those involved in the bidding process expected to hear back from United in around seven days.

And as time has dragged on the situation has allegedly caused “frustration” and even “annoyance” in certain quarters.

Man Utd transfer window concerns

There are reportedly growing “concerns” from United’s bidders that with the clock ticking, should the Glazers accept an offer for full control, the chosen buyer may not be in place in time to oversee the summer transfer window.

Such a situation would be detrimental to the progress United have made under new manager Erik ten Hag.

While several outgoings are on the cards to ensure the club abides by financial fair play regulations, United have been tipped to make big-money bids to sign either Tottenham's Harry Kane or Napoli’s Victor Osimhen.

Moreover, they are keen to sign a new midfielder, having reportedly identified Brighton’s Moises Caicedo and Alexis Mac Allister as possible targets.

Right-back is also a position the club may strengthen, with transfer guru Fabrizio Romano having claimed United have even held talks with the representatives of Bayer Leverkusen’s Jeremie Frimpong.
