Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the man who opened the door to take over Manchester United, is said to have quickly fired a key figure.
After two rounds of bidding with the participation of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the richest man in England, and Sheikh Jassim of Qatar, the Glazer family has not yet determined the winner. Previously, the media shared that the owner of Manchester United would select a buyer for the club in the next few days .
Multiple sources suggest that Nice’s owner Ratcliffe has the upper hand. That news is not very good for Man Utd fans because they want to see the Qatari pocket money pouring into Old Trafford.
And if Ratcliffe buys Man Utd, executive director Richard Arnold is likely not satisfied. Arnold took over from Ed Woodward last year and has been in charge of transfers at the club ever since.
However, according to Sportbible, Ratcliffe wants to bring his familiar to Man Utd, especially when he owns Nice. Therefore, Arnold can leave.
It would be the same move Todd Boehly did when he took over at Chelsea. Petr Cech, Marina Granovskaia and Bruce Buck were the members who made Chelsea successful under Roman Abrahmovich, but they had to leave because a new owner appeared.
