Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag reviews Wolves win
Manchester United prospective owner Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al-Thani has already promised to resolve one issue Cristiano Ronaldo raised before his acrimonious exit from Old Trafford. It has been widely reported that part of the Qatari royal’s long-term plan for the Red Devils will be to improve the Carrington training ground.
Sheikh Jassim is one of the leading bidders to buy the Premier League outfit from the Glazer family. Despite reports claiming that British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe is the favourite to become the new owner, the Qatari bid apparently remains hopeful of completing a deal.
Speculation over the Qatari’s chances of buying United mounted when co-owner Avram Glazer was spotted outside a London hotel owned by Sheikh Jassim’s father. It is unclear if the American businessman was present for talks or if the link was a complete coincidence.
Should he take over control of the club, Sheikh Jassim’s plans are widely believed to include improving the training ground, Old Trafford and the surrounding area. It would resolve a long-term issue that made up part of Ronaldo’s complaints about the club.

During his fiery interview with Piers Morgan that ultimately saw his contract ripped up, Ronaldo took aim at the state of the facilities. He said: “Nothing changed, surprisingly. Not only the pool, the jacuzzi, even the gym. Even the kitchen, the chefs, whom I appreciate – lovely people. They stopped in time. It surprised me a lot.
“I thought I would see other things, technologies, and infrastructure. Unfortunately, we see a lot of what I used to see at 21, 22, and 23 years old. It really surprised me.
“Since Ferguson left, I haven’t seen an evolution at the club. Progress is zero. You have to tear it down and rebuild it. If they start with me, it’s not a problem.”

A goalkeeper, midfielder and a striker are believed to be priorities heading into the market, which opens for all international deals on July 1. Even if a new owner is announced in the coming weeks, Express Sport reported that it could the sale process could still take at least a month to conclude.
