Sheikh Jassim Al Thani is confident of winning the race to buy Manchester United and he believes his offer is the best.
This comes as the takeover process enters its second stage. A delegation from Qatar is expected at Old Trafford in the coming days to witness a presentation from the club.
The visit from Sheikh Jassim’s representatives will also allow them to independently assess the magnitude of what it will take to undertake a redevelopment of Old Trafford.
People working for Sir Jim Ratcliffe will also visit United next week.
Fabrizio Romano reports, “Sheikh Jassim Al Thani is still convinced to buy Manchester United. He remains keen on Manchester United project to buy out the Glazers and minority shareholders in their entirety.”
“Al Thani feels his bid could be the best one with plans to invest in the squad, youth system and facilities.”

A Qatar-based journalist relays that the Glazers and Sheikh Jassim will arrive at a compromise soon enough.
“One of the most important reasons for delaying the United deal is that the team’s owners are delaying to get more money.”
“The Qatari offer is the highest and most complete offer in all respects, and they will soon agree to it.”
واحد من أهم أسباب تأخير صفقة اليونايتد.. أن ملاك الفريق يماطلون للحصول على مال أكثر.. رغم ان العرض القطري هو العرض الأعلى والأكمل من جميع النواحي، وسيوافقون عليه قريباً …. pic.twitter.com/RTw73A6HFo
