Finnish businessman Zilliacus, along with favourites Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatari Sheikh Jassim Bin Al Thani, are all yet to match the Glazers’ valuation of £6billion.

And Zilliacus has now taken to social media to state he is out of the running to buy United, as he declared that the process has turned into a ‘farce’.

The 69-year-old had vowed to stump up £3bn of his own money, while asking fans to cough up £1.5bn.

But he has now taken his offer off the table, as he hit out at the American billionaires in two damning Twitter posts.

He said: “I have declined participation in a third bidding round for United.

“The bidding is turning into a farce, with the Glazers giving no respect to the club.

“The delays will make it very difficult for any new owner to build a winning team for next season.”

Zilliacus added: “Jim Ratcliffe, Sheikh Jassim and myself all were ready to negotiate a deal to buy United.

“Instead the Glazers chose to start a new round.

“I will not participate in a farce set up to maximize the profit for the sellers at the expense of Manchester United.”

The Glazers announced in November that they were exploring ‘strategic alternatives’ which could include a full sale of United.

The Americans bought the Premier League giants for £790million in 2005.
