Arsenal Legend clarify what Sir Ratcliffe would’nt do at Manchester After working with him.

Patrick Vieira described actions that Sir Jim Ratcliffe would “never” take as the proprietor of Manchester United.

Ratcliffe and Qatari banker Sheikh Jassim have been engaged in a takeover battle to purchase Manchester United from the Glazers for the past three months.

Sheikh Jassim has submitted a world-record $5 billion proposal for a 100% stake in the Premier League club, whereas Ratcliffe’s Ineos group has only submitted an offer for a controlling stake.

According to the Sun, the Glazers are anticipated to announce the “winning” bid within the next few days, with Ratcliffe believed to be the preferred bidder.

Given the Glazer family’s propensity to sell majority control as opposed to the entire club, it is believed that the Briton is in the driver’s seat.

In addition, while Sheikh Jassim’s £5 billion proposal for full control was the highest amount offered, Ratcliffe’s rumored deal for 50% placed a higher value on the Premier League giants.

Patrick Vieira on the Ratcliffe acquisition of Man United

According to former Crystal Palace manager Patrick Vieira, who worked under Ratcliffe’s ownership at French club Nice, the British tycoon will not interfere with Erik ten Hag’s business if he acquires United.

In July 2019, Ratcliffe’s Ineos acquired Nice, one season into Vieira’s tenure as manager there. Following a string of five consecutive defeats in all competitions, the legendary Arsenal manager was fired 18 months later.

Vieira told Four,Four,Two of Ratcliffe, “He would never interfere with my work.”

“When we met, we would speak about football, the team, and our lives, but he is not an owner who will interfere with the manager’s ability to do his job.

“His ambitions and expectations are lofty, so you know where you stand, but you’re free to perform your duties as you see fit.”

In addition to Nice, Ratcliffe also owns FC Lausanne-Sport and the Ineos Britannia sailing team.

The company’s inventory also includes the cycling team Ineos Grenadiers, which has achieved success in the Tour de France.
