The Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) is reportedly exploring the possibility of acquiring a stake in Manchester United Football Club, as part of its plan to enter the elite football market. This comes after the QIA decided not to invest in Liverpool due to two major reasons.
The latest major news in elite football surrounding owners is that Liverpool and Manchester United, two of the biggest clubs in the world, are both owned by American billionaires. This could be seen as a potential opportunity for the QIA to enter the market and gain a foothold in the market.
Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Qatar Investment Authority Mansoor Ebrahim Al-Mahmoud called on Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif here on Monday to discuss the potential acquisition of Manchester United. Reports suggest that the Qatar Investment Authority is looking to acquire a stake of up to 20 per cent in the Premier League club.
