It seems that Britain’s richest man, Jim Ratcliffe, will be selected as the preferred negotiator for the takeover of Manchester United.
According to Britain’s ‘The Sun’, Ratcliffe will be designated as the preferred negotiator ahead of Qatar Islamic Bank (QIB) chairman Sheikh Jasim bin Hamad Al-Thani. The Glazers, who own Manchester United, put the club on the market five months ago.
A longtime Manchester United fan, Ratcliffe is the owner of chemical company Ineos. He is famous as the richest man in England. According to Bloomberg’s Billionaires Index, his fortune is known to reach $14.3 billion (about 19 trillion won).
The bidding price of Ratcliffe and Jasim 온라인카지노 is believed to be around 5 billion pounds (approximately 8.4 trillion won). The Qatari capital is said to be slightly higher than that of Ratcliffe.
However, while Jashim demanded a 100% acquisition of Manchester United, Ratcliffe decided to allow a certain share so that the Glazer family could continue their relationship with Manchester United, and the trend was divided. The US-based Reine Group, which has overseen the sale of the club, plans to announce the final bidder within a few days.
‘The Sun’ predicted on the 11th (Korean time) that if Ratcliffe takes over, a lot of changes will happen to Manchester United in this summer transfer market. The first is the joint recruitment of Harry Kane and Kim Min-jae.
Kane is suggesting staying at Tottenham, but manager Eric Ten Hag is sincere about Kane’s signing. In order for Manchester United to rise to the top of Europe after the English Premier League (EPL), they desperately need to recruit a world-class striker, but it is judged that there is no striker like Kane.
Kim Min-jae’s name also rose. Manchester United is preparing to invest £53m (approximately KRW 88.5 billion), which is £13m (approximately KRW 21.7 billion) more than Napoli’s £40m buyout (approximately KRW 66.8 billion) this summer.
In addition, West Ham’s £100 million (approximately 167 billion won) midfielder Declan Rice and French legend Lilian Thuram’s second son, Kefran Thuram (Nice), are also on Manchester United’s radar.
Jean-Claire Todibo (Nice) is listed as Kim Min-jae’s partner. The goalkeeper position is Brentford’s David Raya.
The expected best 11 for the next season of the Ratcliffe system was also released. Kane stands at the top, and the existing Marcus Rashford, Bruno Fernandez, and Anthony are located in the second line.
Thuram and Rice work together as defensive midfielders, and Luke Shaw, Kim Min-jae, Todibo, and Diogo Dalot form the back four. The goal is guarded by Raya.
