Manchester United is set to be withdrawn from the market by the Glazer family, as potential bidders have failed to meet their asking price of £10 billion.
The family has received offers from various parties during a prolonged negotiation period, but only Sheikh Jassim of Qatar and Sir Jim Ratcliffe emerged as serious bidders.
The decision is likely to anger United fans, who have criticized the owners for a lack of investment and success.
The Glazers had hoped to attract multiple serious bidders, but this did not materialize.
The family plans to sell the club again in 2025, hoping that financial and environmental factors will attract more bidders and enable them to sell United for between £7 billion and £10 billion.
