Big takeover twist: Reporter shares Man Utd “latest” from Old Trafford that “would anger fans”

Posted by

According to Mike Keegan, Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s upcoming offer to Manchester United will allow Joel and Avram Glazer to continue being owners at Old Trafford.

What are the most recent Ratcliffe-related Man United takeover rumours?

When it comes to a complete takeover in Manchester, Ratcliffe and Sheikh Jassim have been the front-runners, and the duo last month submitted second offers after originally missing the deadline.

Another round of bids at Old Trafford has been scheduled, and an outright sale is regarded to be the most likely outcome.

The Glazers may remain employed under Ratcliffe’s direction, however there appears to have been a takeover twist on Ratcliffe’s part.

On Wednesday night, dependable reporter Keegan shared the “latest” information regarding a takeover of Manchester United on Twitter. In a narrative he shared for The Daily Mail, Ratcliffe was reported to be offering a proposal in which Joel and Avram Glazer would continue to hold a combined 20% of the club, according to Keegan. Ben Jacobs called it a “big twist” and described it as such.

Keegan claimed that Ratcliffe would acquire a controlling stake of more than 50% and that this “would enrage fans.” A third bid for the club is expected to be made by Jassim before the deadline on Friday. He has no interest in a deal similar to this one.

Old Trafford protests continue…

Many supporters would be happy to see Old Trafford renovated, the training facility improved, and manager Erik ten Hag given significant transfer monies as a result of a Ratcliffe-led takeover.

The Glazers’ continued ownership of a minority stake in the team, though, would enrage some fans who intend to march from the city centre to Old Trafford on Sunday in support of a full sale.

Even though the group is expected to miss the first 18 minutes of this weekend’s game, by that point we should know whether Ratcliffe or Jassim will be the team’s primary leader in Manchester. In light of this latest development, some supporters could be rooting for Jassim.
