Sir Jim Ratcliffe is reportedly interested in Manchester United’s latest transfer strategy

Sir Jim Ratcliffe is planning to purchase a 25% share in United.

According to the Daily Mail, British businessman Sir Jim Ratcliffe plans to utilize a transfer strategy similar to that of Sir Alex Ferguson. Ratcliffe and his company, INEOS Group, are on the verge of acquiring a 25% share in Manchester United.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, CEO of INEOS Chemicals and owner of Ligue 1 team OGC Nice, is close to reaching an agreement with the club that will give him major decision-making power. Ratcliffe may now pursue a whole different approach to bringing in more homegrown talent for the club. The club, on the other hand, will not be unaffected by the change. The new method will be similar to that employed by Sir Alex Ferguson during his 26-year tenure as manager of Manchester United.

The Red Devils have spent a lot of money on international players in recent seasons, but the results have been disappointing. To improve, they intend to bring in a new midfielder and a right-footed center-back in January. Ratcliffe may also appoint new Sporting Directors such as Paolo Maldini and Paul Mitchell, further upsetting up the management.

The presence of Sir Jim Ratcliffe at Manchester United may jeopardize Erik ten Hag‘s position. Both fans and football analysts have called for the Dutch manager to be fired. Chris Wheeler, a Manchester United analyst for Mail Sports, believes the Dutchman will be the first casualty once Ratcliffe takes control. United is currently suffering in all tournaments and faces elimination from the Champions League group stage. Ratcliffe’s £1.3 billion deal will give him power over the Glazers.

A thorough management makeover, maybe beginning with the departure of ten Hag, is in the works. Ratcliffe’s team may also explore selling underperformin.
