He says fans of the English club continue to press for the departure of the powerful American family with regular protests outside Old Trafford or on the streets of the city. Several sources indicate that there is no shortage of candidates to take over one of the strongest clubs in the world.
Ratcliffe on the raft
Jim Ratcliffe, CEO of INEOS and current owner of OGC Nice, is today a favorite among bookmakers in the potential takeover of Manchester United. The British billionaire is a big fan of the “Red Devils”, who have not stopped him from showing interest in selling Chelsea in recent months. The plan would be to quickly enter the English club’s capital as a minority shareholder initially before taking control if the opportunity presents itself in the future. However, a strong contender could come to scuttle Ratcliffe’s plans because Dubai’s sovereign wealth fund will also be spot on.
