Sheikh Jassim has not heard back from Manchester United after making his fourth bid for the club, according to The Guardian reporter Jamie Jackson.
The Glazers reportedly had a board meeting last week to discuss any updates about the bidding process but Jackson claims they have still not responded to the Qatari’s most recent offer:
As I understand it, Sheikh Jassim is still waiting to hear back from Glazers regarding his last bid for Man Utd…

It has been claimed that the delays in the sale of United are down to splits between some of the Glazers, with some more willing to sell than others.
However, it is believed that they would all agree to a sale if a bid is tabled that meets their reported £6bn asking price. From the sound of things, Sheikh Jassim’s proposal hasn’t been deemed sufficient, based on the lack of feedback.
Jassim could be considering a fifth bid
Due to the silence they have received in terms of the last official offer, you can’t rule out another bid.
The BBC reporter Simon Stone and The Athletic’s Laurie Whitwell have both hinted that the Qataris may go back in and that is now looking increasingly likely.
