Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani will win the race to succeed the Glazers.
American United owners put the club up for sale in November.
I set a deadline in March to ease the transition ahead of the summer transfer market.
However, United remain unsold after numerous offers.
The race consisted of two competitors, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim.
Ratcliffe is aiming for majority control while keeping the Glazers on board to some extent.
Sheik Jassim seeks 100 percent control of Old Trafford.
Ray’s Qatar team now say their offer has finally been accepted and the Glazers will sign all relevant paperwork in the next few hours. It has already been said that Sheikh Yassim’s men “express their belief in victory”.
