Ten Haag meets Ratcliffe, ‘Man Utd takeover candidate’￼
Manager Eric Ten Haag directly mentioned that he had met Sir Jim Ratcliffe, a candidate to take over Manchester United.
The acquisition of Manchester United is one of the hottest issues this season. The Glazer family, which reigned as owners for nearly 20 years from 2005, announced in November of last year that they were looking for ‘new investment opportunities’. In effect, he was declaring that he was willing to sell Manchester United.
The current frontrunner is Sheikh Jassim bin Jaber Al-Sahni, chairman of the Islamic Bank of Qatar. Chairman Al Thani confirmed the proposal for Manchester United through a statement sent to the British ‘Financial Times’ on the 18th of last month (Korean time), saying, “We plan to return Manchester United to its former glory both on and off the pitch안전놀이터.”
Recently I also visited Old Trafford. Reporter Mike Keegan, who is a member of the UK’s ‘Daily Mail’ and is well versed in Manchester United news, said on the 16th, “Qatari president Al Thani, who wants to take over Manchester United, will send representatives to Manchester to talk positively with club officials before proceeding with the second bid. “Qatar is working on the takeover with all its might,” he said.
The same goes for Ratcliffe. Known to have a total of 13 billion pounds (about 20.6496 trillion won), he was the first person to bid to buy Manchester United. He is also sincere about acquiring the football team, even competing to acquire Chelsea, which was triggered by the Russian-Ukrainian war last year.
He also visited Old Trafford. Global media ‘ESPN’ reported on the 18th, “Ratcliffe and his consortium members met Manchester United CEO Richard Arnold at Old Trafford on Friday morning before touring the Carrington training base.”
In the process, he is known to have also met with manager Ten Hagh. Coach Ten Hag returned to Manchester United after winning the European Football Federation (UEFA) Europa League (UEL) and faced them. “I just met them (Ratcliffe and his consortium) and shook hands,” he said at a press conference ahead of the FA Cup quarter-final against Fulham.
Along with this, he also revealed his intention to focus on the game. “I’m going to focus on the game. We have a big game on Sunday and all the focus is on that,” said Ten Haag.
