Glazers ‘close’ to agreeing Man Utd takeover with Sir Jim Ratcliffe
Ten Hag details meeting with Ratcliffe amid Man Utd bid
The Glazers and Sir Jim Ratcliffe are ‘close’ to an agreement with regards to a Manchester United takeover, reports say. It emerged on Friday the British billionaire had made the biggest bid for the club, despite interest from Sheikh Jassim. However, the Glazers are poised to remain at Old Trafford despite many wanting to see the back of the controversial Americans.
According to the Daily Record, Ratcliffe has submitted a ‘best of both worlds offer’ as he looks to buy United.
The Brit previously missed out on buying Chelsea and is determined to purchase the Red Devils, having long been a fan of the club.
It’s claimed Ratcliffe, after submitting his third bid for United on Friday evening, is now ‘close’ to agreeing a deal with the Glazers that would see him being the next owner of the club.
The Ineos chief is reportedly confident his latest offer will be accepted by the Glazers, who would stay at the club in a smaller capacity.
Ratcliffe’s ‘revised proposal’ would see Ineos ‘take over the running of the club’. They would also sanction transfers, do work on sports science and make improvements to both Old Trafford and the club’s Carrington training complex.
