The Sunday Mirror`s back pages contain an article that cannot fail to attract your attention if you`re a Manchester United supporter.

It implies that our famous club could be on the verge of being purchased, lock, stock and barrel by Qatar Holdings

With FIFA, rightly or wrongly, awarding the 2022 World Cup to Qatar, the country is suddenly becoming a major focal point when it comes to football.

Qatar Holdings, an investment vehicle for the Qatari royal family, are said to be prepared to put a massive £2.5 billion into securing the club with Sir Alex Ferguson being given an unlimited transfer budget.

Whether the Glazer Family are prepared to sell, at this price, remains open to debate but with the Red Knights consortium being told they`d need in excess of £1 billion to strike a deal the initial prospects of ridding United of the American influence does look quite favourable!
