Manchester United is preparing for a £ 3.8 billion purchase offer reported by Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
The Saudi royal family wants to tempt the Glazers in the sale of Premier League giants with the promise of bringing the club back to the top of European football.
The Prince, whose family is worth more than £ 850 billion, has increased his efforts to take control of Old Trafford.
They say the acquisition attempt comes after the United leaders have been spotted spending more and more time in Saudi Arabia.
Only a large offer would have convinced the Glazer family to separate from the club they first invested in in 2003.
But after spending £ 790 million to buy United when they increased their holdings 14 years ago, American moguls could cash a staggering £ 2.2 billion.
The United States has been in the shadow of Manchester City since they were bought by Sheikh Mansour.
The involvement of the Abu Dhabi royal family saw the club win the Premier League title three times.
Reportedly, Mohammad bin Salman intends to make the investments appear tiny if he were able to conclude an agreement.
The Sun declares that an offer is close but the rating will be lower if United fails to earn a place in the Champions League.
United are away with Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Monday, the club's most likely chance to win silver this season.
Meanwhile they are trying to make David De Gea the highest paid player in Premier League history.
The goalkeeper is out of contract in June 2020 and Old Trafford officials fear losing their number one in free.
Now, according to the Times, they have tipped the carrot to become the biggest earner ever in English football with a £ 90m offering – more or less 365,000 pounds a week – on the table.
