Manchester United One Step Closer to New Investment

Manchester United is edging closer to securing new investment as their players prepare to resume domestic play following the October international break. After nearly a year since the Glazer family announced a strategic review of their ownership, billionaire and INEOS founder, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is expected to purchase a 25% stake in the club. The offer is said to be worth £1.4 billion to the Glazers if they accept Ratcliffe’s revised proposal.

On the pitch, manager Erik ten Hag will face some challenges as several players are injured. Sofyan Amrabat, who sustained a knock while on international duty with Morocco, has recovered and will train ahead of the Sheffield United match. However, Casemiro, who also suffered a minor injury while on duty with Brazil, will not be available for the game.
