The only bidder to submit an offer that valued Manchester United at more than 5 billion pounds was Jim Ratcliffe's Ineos. The Times reported that Ineos had won the bidding war to purchase Manchester United by outbidding the Qatari consortium headed by Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani. As part of his proposal, Ratcliffe has reportedly sought to take over transfers for Manchester United. According to The Daily Telegraph, Ratcliffe's offer for Manchester United includes a need to manage the team's transfer operations as soon as the purchase is finalized. On June 10, the summer transfer window is slated to start.
Ineos, owned by British billionaire Jim Ratcliffe, joined the competition early this year. On behalf of the supporters and the larger community, “We would view our job as the long-term caretakers of Manchester United. We want to invest in Manchester United to help them become the top club in the world once again because we are ambitious and fiercely competitive, according to an official statement released by Ineos.
But it might be difficult for Jim Ratcliffe to acquire ownership of Manchester United. The owners of Manchester United are reportedly in negotiations with the international investment group Carlyle about selling the Premier League team. To the pleasure of Manchester United supporters, the Glazers had previously stated their intention to sell the team. In 2005, the Americans acquired Manchester United using leverage. However, Manchester United supporters were not particularly impressed with how they managed the club over time. The Old Trafford club's poor domestic league result also contributed significantly to the enraged fans. Since Sir Alex Ferguson, the Red Devils' former head coach, left in the 2012–13 season, they have failed to win a Premier League championship.
Returning to the field of play, this season's Carabao Cup victory by Manchester United marked the end of the team's six-year trophy drought. Manchester United is now ranked fourth in the Premier League. On Friday, they will play against Brighton & Hove Albion. Manchester United defeated Aston Villa 1-0 in their most recent game to secure an important victory. Bruno Fernandes, a Portuguese playmaker, scored the game's only goal to give his team a perfect three points.
