Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a British millionaire, wants to purchase Manchester United. The 69-year-old’s was made public after a Bloomberg story that said the Glazer family was prepared to sell a small percentage of the club.

If the club is put up for sale, Jim is unquestionably a potential buyer, Ratcliffe’s spokesman told The Times. We would be willing to talk about long-term ownership if something comparable could be accomplished.

United, who have won the English Premier League twenty times, are currently last after losing both of their preseason contests under new manager Erik ten Hag.

The squad’s poor start has increased criticism of the Glazers’ perceived lack of support for the team.

This summer, Barcelona attempted to sign Dutch midfielder Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona, and star striker Cristiano Ronaldo may leave Old Trafford.

When United and their Anfield rivals play each other again on Monday at Old Trafford, United supporters will once again demonstrate against the American family.

Ratcliffe, a native of Lancashire and the company’s primary stakeholder, has supported the team since he was a child. He also owns the cycling team Ineos Grenadiers and the French team Nice, as well as the Swiss club Lausanne-Sport and the F1 team-affiliated Ineos.

Jim is thinking about what can be done immediately and believes that a reset is necessary given how important the club is to the neighbourhood.

The Manchester United Supporters’ Trust (MUST) cautiously welcomed Ratcliffe’s interest but noted that fan support would be necessary for a takeover.

The richest man in the world, Elon Musk, had earlier on Wednesday tweeted that he was going to acquire United and later clarified that he was joking.

Forbes estimates that Musk, 51, is worth $270 billion (£223 billion), whereas Ratcliffe is worth an estimated $16.3 billion (£13.5 billion).

Ratcliffe attempted to purchase Chelsea in May after owner Roman Abramovich placed the London club up for sale, but his £4.25 billion bid was rejected.

Ratcliffe stated that he was still a fan of Manchester United and that he had decided not to bid for the Red Devils because they were not up for sale at the time.
