Ratcliffe intends to make an investment in the club before acquiring full ownership.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe would be very interested in buying Manchester United if the club's existing owners, the Glazer family, were to sell.

According to a spokesperson for the billionaire owner of Ineos, who claims to being a fan of Manchester United, the English tycoon sees himself as a "possible buyer" of the Red Ratcliffe and hopes to eventually take full control of the team in the near future.

The 69-year-old billionaire recently made a bid to purchase Chelsea, but Todd Boehly and the group he heads were able to outbid him and acquire control of the London club.

Ratcliffe made a last-ditch offer of £4.25 billion to purchase the Stamford Bridge club in May, but now that he's shown an interest in Manchester United, he's bent on taking over the club.
