Sir Jim Ratcliffe can hand Erik ten Hag the ultimate present as Man Utd ‘encourage’ deal

Once he buys a 25% stake in the team, Sir Jim Ratcliffe might give Erik ten Hag the perfect gift at the beginning of their working partnership at Manchester United. The £1.4 billion transaction that the INEOS CEO is closing on with the Glazer family is likely to hand over control of United’s athletic operations.

According to reports, Sir Jim has set aside £245 million to upgrade United’s aging facilities, which includes the club’s Carrington training center and the initial phase of Old Trafford’s renovation.

Additionally, it is reported that he has already begun reviewing the sporting department before perhaps assigning some of his own people to key positions inside the club administration.

With Sir Jim joining, United’s transfer policy is expected to shift, and there’s now a greater chance than ever for a world-class sporting director to join the M16.

With the varied results of his 16 signings since last summer, it would lessen Ten Hag’s influence over hiring, but there would be goals that everyone at United could agree with.

Jean-Clair Todibo, who permanently joined OGC Nice from Barcelona in 2021 for little over £13 million, is undoubtedly the most notable. Over the previous two seasons, he has been one of Europe’s top center-backs.
