As per the above statement, the bid will be completely debt free, a stark difference from the Glazers purchase in 2005.
The Glazers have been spotted in Qatar over the past few months.
Qatar have been recent favourites to buy Man United with Ineos owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe also interested in the club.
Reports suggest that along with Ratcliffe and Qatar, two further bids are expected by today’s 22:00 “soft deadline”.
More details will be released surrounding this Qatar bid in due course.
