Manchester United in ‘advanced talks’ to close first signing of the Ratcliffe era for £44m

Posted by

As part of their new era, Manchester United is seeking to sign a player for £44 million, with funding led by INEOS billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Ratcliffe, a lifetime Red Devils fan and new director, has already met by manager Erik ten Hag, who reports that their conversation was fruitful. This month, Manchester United is anticipated to make additions as the team undergoes transitions.

Regarding the encounter, Ten Hag stated, “I have to say, very positive.” We sit together for a great deal of time. We had a lot of issues where we agreed. I’m happy to report that the meeting was quite productive, and we’re eager to collaborate.

Potential Owner of Manchester United, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is shown here on Tuesday, January 15, 2019, in Antwerp, during the signing of an investment agreement between the chemicals company Ineos and the harbour.

Les Bons Conceil Du Sports, a French website, has reported that Giorgio Scalvini of Atalanta might be United’s first signing. The club is reportedly in “advanced negotiations” with the Bergamo outfit over a deal.

Les Bons Conceil Du Sports is not a well-known source, but HITC has corroborated the report in part by stating that United has recently had scouts observe the lanky defender. For his team, Scalvini primarily plays as a back three, but he has also had experience as a defensive midfielder.

Negotiations between United and Atalanta are nothing new, as they were engaged during the summer when Rasmus Hojlund was signed; nevertheless, this transaction might be less expensive. There is a rumoured £44 million release clause for Scalvini.

We highlighted that the now 20-year-old “has good reading of play, he’s calm under pressure and his passing range is good,” which helped him rank No. 22 among FourFourTwo’s most interesting teens to watch this season.
