Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani has just submitted a fifth and final bid to buy Manchester United in its entirety, reports the BBC.
The Qatari banker has set a deadline of Friday for the Glazers to get back to him. Sheikh Jassim is no longer expected to be part of the takeover process after that.
Like his first four bids, the fifth one is also to own 100% of the club and clear the mounting net debt.
Although the exact figure of the bid is unknown, Sheikh Jassim has raised his initial offer significantly to match the Glazers' demand of £6 billion.
