How Man Utd’s prospective owners’ net worth compare to Liverpool

While Liverpool look increasingly unlikely to complete a takeover in the near future, rivals Manchester United’s search for a new owner is well underway. The Red Devils welcomed second bids from a number of interested parties this week and are one step closer to replacing the Glazer family.

One of the favourites to buy United is Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al-Thani, who will reportedly bid a whopping £5.5 billion to win the race for the club. While the Qatari’s net worth alone is unknown, his family is worth £275 billion and the head of the royal family - Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani - has a net worth of around £1.6 billion alone.

If United are to be taken over by Sheikh Jassim’s family then they will become significantly closer to challenging the likes of Man City and Newcastle United as one of the Premier League’s richest clubs.

Meanwhile reports earlier this month claimed American-Iranian billionaire Jahm Najafi is considering an approach to purchase Everton amid growing unrest towards the club's current ownership.
