Manchester United takeover news: Glazers asked PSG president for help persuading fellow Qatari Sheikh Jassim to...
The Glazers are understood to have asked Paris Saint-Germains president for help persuading his fellow Qatari, Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani, to increase his Manchester United bid.
Insiders close to talks told Telegraph Sport that Nasser Al-Khelaifi declined to get involved after Uniteds owners suggested last month he might be able to help as a middle man.
Sheikh Jassim, who has since tabled a fifth buyout offer for Manchester United, had separately sought Al-Khelaifis private opinion on the proposed takeover.
However, multiple sources maintain the PSG owner has no official or unofficial role in the process and offered no input on how much the Qatari group should pay.
To ward off suggestions that a Qatari takeover could breach multi-club ownership rules in the Champions League, the Sheikh Jassim camp has consistently underlined its offer is from private funding unrelated to Qatar Sports Investments, which owns PSG.
