“Suddenly” – Sky Sports reporter drops big Man Utd takeover claim hours before final deadline

Posted by

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the prospective owner of Manchester United, is now willing to collaborate with the Glazers, Sky Sports correspondent Dharmesh Sheth told GIVEMESPORT.

Ratcliffe had shown interest in buying the football club entirely, but new rumours indicate the INEOS chairman has changed his mind.

latest news on Manchester United’s takeover

According to a report by Sky Sports News, Ratcliffe is now prepared to give up his efforts to purchase United fully in exchange for a cooperative strategy that would allow the Glazers to continue to play for the team.

When the takeover talks started, it was said that Ratcliffe, whose INEOS group has a long history of sports ownership, was aiming for a 100% purchase of United.

That was consistent with the strategy used by Sheikh Jassim, a rival front-runner who is still willing to buy the club outright.

Growing evidence suggests that neither side has come close to matching the value assigned to United by the current owners, indicating that Ratcliffe has changed his earlier attitude.

According to the story, Ratcliffe will now accept receiving 50% of the club, with the Glazers continuing to hold minority ownership.

The journalist Dean Jones recently told GIVEMESPORT that if the Glazers remain in charge to some extent, we could be ready to witness the “worst” anti-Glazers protest ever. However, that scenario is unlikely to satisfy many portions of the United fandom.

What comments has Dharmesh Sheth made on the takeover of United?

Today, Sky Sports reporter Sheth provided an important update regarding the United takeover in an interview with GIVEMESPORT.

Sheth commented on the current circumstance, “A minor shift of tact, isn’t it? There were about seven interested parties, and we understood that Sheikh Jassim’s and Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s were both planning comprehensive takeovers.

“However, all of a sudden, they’ve changed, saying that the Glazers will still hold a 50% interest in the company. Due to the third deadline tonight, we’ll learn later today which bids have been submitted and what kind of makeup those bids are.

What effect might this have on United’s current campaign?

Erik ten Hag’s team has little else to play for with only a few games remaining in the 2022–23 season.

The Red Devils appear poised to finish inside the top four and achieve qualification back into the Champions League after already winning the League Cup earlier this season.

At the beginning of June, an FA Cup final against rival Manchester City is scheduled, but it’s likely that the takeover will have the biggest effect on United’s summer transfer business.

In a recent interview with GIVEMESPORT, journalist Jones stated that Jassim, not Ratcliffe, would be the “most ambitious” potential buyer.
