Faiq Bolkiah – grandson of the Sultan of Brunei, has an incredible net worth, estimated at around $28 billion, or £22 billion. Bolkiah is considered the richest player in the world. With such a “terrible” fortune, he is more than capable of offering 3 times the price to buy Man United – the club being shouted by the Glazer family for up to 6 billion pounds.
His father, Prince Jefri, once spent £ 17 million for Michael Jackson to perform on his 50th birthday. Despite his wealth, Bolkiah is still focused on his football career, even though it has not progressed much.
Only 23 years old, but Faiq Bolkiah has experienced many teams. He trained at the academies of Southampton, Chelsea and Leicester before joining Madeira Maritimo – a team playing in the Portuguese league, in 2020. However, the Bruneian player did not play a minute in the first team of the team. Martimo and he were looking for opportunities in Southeast Asia by joining Chonburi.
Back to the business situation of Man United. Ratcliffe, Britain’s richest man and head of the Ineos group, submitted bids in both previous rounds, along with Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al-Thani and several others. Previously, it was reported that Sheikh Jassim intended to buy back 100% of the club’s shares instead of a minority stake. But now, rumors have surfaced that Ratcliffe has made an offer to allow two of the Glazer family members to continue to be shareholders of the club.
The Times hypothesizes that, in Ratcliffe’s latest proposal, the head of Ineos group will take a 50% controlling stake in the club. The rest, Avram and Joel will hold 20%, the remaining 30% will belong to other groups. The offer is likely to appeal to Avram and Joel, who have been at odds with other family members over whether to sell all or only a small portion of MU’s shares.
