Sir Jim Ratcliffe's Plan That Might Make Man United Indomitable Again Amid Potential Takeover Claims

Following a compromising over 15 years of owning Manchester United, American billionaires- The Glazer Family could be finally set for a stunning exit with them understood to be now willing to sanction the sale of the 20 times Premier League winners especially after the recent demonstrations by the Old Trafford faithful who want to see them long gone.

Hence, one of the top individuals who have been touted for a potential purchase of the Red half of Manchester is British Billionaire and Ineos Chief Executive Officer and Co-owner, Sir Jimmy Ratcliffe.

Ratcliffe, 69 has for long been understood to be willing to make a blockbuster bid to buy off the Glazers though his attempts has always met resistance from the American owners and therefore, their latest change of stance has made the Englishman to re-consider his motives, which is to become the new owner of Manchester United and return back the old glory days.

In his plan, Sir Jimmy Ratcliffe is believed to be lining up Paris Saint-Germain director of football, Luis Campos to take over from John Murtough at the Theatre of Dreams with the Frenchman holding a fantastic record in player recruitment.

Kyllian Mbappe, Anthony Martial, Bernardo Silva and Victor Osimhen are just some of the world class stars identified by Campos early into their football careers and hence, Ratcliffe believes he has all it takes to do the same for Manchester United.

What's more, the 69 year old is understood to be willing to involve former United stars in the boardroom should he manage to agree a deal with the Glazer Family to take over at the Theatre of Dreams.

In the meantime, it remains to be seen whether Dutch tactician, Erik ten Hag would be safe under Ratcliffe's touted ownership though his impressive start to life at Old Trafford which has seen a number of players improve on their form shows he deserves a chance.
