The Qatari bid to buy Manchester United has been urged upon UEFA.

Qatar is interested in purchasing the Red Devils before tomorrow’s bid deadline.


But Uefa have been urged to block a bid from Qatar due to links with PSG


Though any United takeover bid will come in from Qatar Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani


Uefa has been advised to reject any Qatari offer as long as Qatar Sports Investment owns PSG.

FairSquare, a human rights organization, has made the request.

According to The Athletic, the group has written to Richard Masters, general secretary of the Premier League, Theodore Theodoridis, and UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin.

“A basic study of Qatar’s political and economic system amply demonstrates the impossibility of any Qatari consortium proving itself independent of state influence, and therefore separate from the ownership of PSG,” the statement reads.

The most recent assessment of Qatar’s record on the rule of law, corruption, and political participation is highly critical and states that “Qatar’s hereditary emir holds all executive and legislative authority and ultimately controls the judiciary.” According to Freedom House’s World Freedom Index, Qatar is classified as “not free.”

No person or legal entity is allowed to control or influence more than one club competing in a Uefa club competition, according to Uefa rules.

Despite Salzburg’s ownership restructuring, Uefa disregarded Red Bull’s ownership of FC Salzburg and RB Leipzig, even though both teams compete in the Champions League.

It was rеportеd еarliеr this wееk that Uеfa would not objеct to any Qatari bid for Manchеstеr Unitеd bеcausе thеy wеrе happy with a bid coming from a diffеrеnt sourcе.
