Good Morning United fans
Manchester United’s takeover could be complete early next year, according to new reports.
The Red Devils unpopular American owners, the Glazers, revealed plans to sell the club last month.
Now the Athletic report that the Raine Bank group, who are overseeing the potential sale of United, are aiming to complete the sale of the club in the “first quarter of 2023”.
Meanwhile, Manchester United are still licking their wounds after losing out on Cody Gakpo.
Rivals Liverpool swooped for the Dutch striker despite months of speculation that suggested he would end up at Old Trafford.
Gakpo has revealed that fellow Dutchman and Liverpool defender Virgil van Dijk potentially helped make up his mind with his glowing review of the Merseyside club.
Meanwhile, Man United have been urged to go and get Harry Kane. The Red Devils are short a striker after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure and pundit Dean Saunders believes the Englishman is a guaranteed 20 goals – but warned he could cost as much as £150m.
It is not just Kane being touted with big price tags either. Man United target Enzo Fernandez has a release clause worth £105m and it is believed any interested clubs may have to go that high to sign the World Cup breakout star. Chelsea currently appear in pole position but Benfica are trying to fend them off.
And Man United legends like Bobby Charlton, Denis Law and Cristiano Ronaldo have paid tribute to Pele, who has died at the age of 92.
