Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani was not present in Manchester on Thursday, sending a delegation for takeover talks.

It has led to some fans questioning whether the Qatari banker is truly committed to overthrowing the Glazers.

However, Sky Sports report that he believed it was too early in the process to visit for a ‘photo opportunity’.

Kaveh Solhekol said: “Feeling that it was too early in the process for Sheikh Jassim to go to Old Trafford in person today. He’s been there before as a fan.

“He didn’t just want to go today for a photo opportunity. He sent his top team of experts in finance, banking, property and law.”
