On the evening of Christmas Eve, the Red Devils announced that they had reached an agreement with the British billionaire to purchase twenty-five percent of the club, subject to the Premier League’s subsequent approval.
During the Premier League match between Manchester United and Tottenham, which finished in a 2-2 tie, Ratcliffe made his first appearance at Old Trafford since the announcement of the agreement, which took place on Sunday.
During a press conference, Ratcliffe informed the reporters that he anticipates the transaction to be finalized in the beginning of February. He stated, “I believe it will take three or four weeks.”
The beginning of February”As an additional point of interest, Ratcliffe stated, “It’s the first match for me since we sort of got there, if you like.”
I am extremely happy to be here, but I am unable to respond to any questions because, to tell you the truth, it would be wrong for me to do so.This is a really important contest… The Spurs are often a great opponent for us!
In light of the fact that the creator of INEOS is eager to appoint a new sporting director and revamp the recruitment department, it is anticipated that Ratcliffe will take over footballing operations when he begins working at Old Trafford.
In addition, the Spanish daily Nacional asserts that Ratcliffe is “interested” in bringing Vinicius to Old Trafford, and that Manchester United is “preparing an offer of €200 million (£172 million)” for the Real Madrid winger.If this were to occur, he would be considered “the second most expensive signing in the history of football,” following Neymar, and it would also be considered “the largest offer in the history of Manchester United.”
It is believed that the funds obtained from that transaction would provide them with “sufficient resources to bring in” Kylian Mbappe and “ensure the arrival of other players of interest, such as Alphonso Davies.”
Nacional say that Man Utd ‘will have to do a wonderful job to seduce’ Vinicius, while they believe Real Madrid now have a ‘agreement’ in place to sign Mbappe – who has also received interest from Liverpool – on a free agent in the summer.Additionally, transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano has provided an update regarding Real Madrid’s possible interest in Davies, who is currently playing for Bayern Munich.
Romano stated in his blog titled “Caught Offside” that Real Madrid is intent on acquiring Alphonso Davies during the summer transfer window.
Despite the fact that nothing will take place in January, Real Madrid is looking to make an effort to get Davies during the summer transfer window.
They are now working on it and discussing it internally, and Davies has consistently been cited as one of their top targets.
There is little doubt that Bayern Munich will make an effort to extend Davies’ contract; nevertheless, if they are unable to reach a conclusion by the time April or May rolls around, the left-back may leave, and Real Madrid will undoubtedly be interested in acquiring him.
It is important to keep a watch on this particular situation because Real Madrid considers Davies to be one of their top goals for the summer transfer window.
