Sheikh Jassim expected to make second Man Utd bid after visit

Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani is expected to make a second bid for Manchester United within 10 days after his representatives visited the club on Thursday.

He has already made an indicative offer before the soft deadline a month ago - all bidders will be asked to make a second bid in the next 10 days.

Sky Sports News has been told by sources in New York that "there should be no doubt at all that Sheikh Jassim wants to be the owner and custodian of United".

A Qatari delegation travelled to Manchester from London on the train and received a warm welcome. Talks are said to have been positive and constructive.

Sheikh Jassim and members of his team have been to Old Trafford as fans before, and the focus of this visit was to get a perspective on what they could do with their capital investment regarding infrastructure, youth development and the women's team.

They have been trying to get a better understanding before they make another bid. United will obviously be "selling the dream" to achieve as high a price as possible if the club is sold.
