  • Three parties submitted bids to buy Man Utd
  • Glazers won't sell for anything less than asking price
  • Red Devils face Leicester on Sunday

WHAT HAPPENED? Three parties - Sir Jim Ratcliffe's INEOS, Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani and American hedge fund, Elliott - have submitted bids to buy Manchester United, but it has been suggested by The Sun that the Glazers are not interested in selling the club unless one of the parties agrees to pay their full asking price of £6 billion ($7bn).

THE BIGGER PICTURE: While INEOS and Elliott are not interested in complete ownership of the club and want a majority stake, Sheikh Jassim has expressed his desire in acquiring 100 per cent of the Premier League giants.

AND WHAT'S MORE: The Glazers are in no hurry to make a decision on the future of the club and it might be possible that they reject all the incoming bids if none of them are considered to be suitable.
