Manchester United can return to the Champions League if they avoid defeat by Chelsea at Old Trafford on Thursday night.

Erik ten Hoag’s side are fourth in the Premier League table, three points ahead of Liverpool in fifth. With their campaign coming to an end at Fulham on Sunday afternoon, United need just one point from their final two matches to seal their fate.

Den Haag is confident his players will be able to get over the line against the Blues, especially as the acquiring counterpart continues to pull away. The transfer window is still a month away from officially opening. With that in mind, here are the latest headlines from Old Trafford.

Will Qatar advance?

Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) is interested in buying Brazilian club Santos.

The rumor comes as Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani is attempting to take over United. The Glazers were put up for sale by United in November, with Sheikh Jassim battling INEOS chairman Sir Jim Radcliffe for ownership of the club.

Radcliffe is expected to win the takeover race as he wants to keep United’s co-chairmen Avram and Joel, two members of the Glazer family, on board. The other four Glazer siblings — Brian, Edward, Darcy and Kevin — are happy to be sold.

Rain Group, which is managing the acquisition on behalf of the Glazers, is expected to name a preferred bidder soon. But with the Premier League having to approve any offer, the takeover streak is expected to ring for some time to come.
