‘Full sale only’ – Manchester United fans infuriated by Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s latest takeover plans

It is clear from the latest update surrounding Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s quest to buy Manchester United that he doesn’t understand the fans.

I’m also questioning how the Daily Mail keeps getting all of these scoops when all bidders have agreed to sign NDAs, however, Mike Keegan shouldn’t be questioned as a journalist. He has been on the money will this story since the Glazers announced their intentions to welcome investment or a potential complete sale of the club.

The latest update suggests Sir Jim Ratcliffe is offering a way for the Glazer family to remain involved with the club.

A similar report appeared on The Times website, so there was clearly a briefing of some sort — just days before the Friday deadline for final offers.

These reports both state that Ratcliffe is offering a deal that would see Joel and Avram Glazer retain 20 per cent stake in the club, therefore, it wouldn’t be an outright sale by any means. In turn, Ratcliffe is requesting a 50 per cent stake in the club.

United fans are eager to see an end to the Glazer era — which is approaching on 18 years, hence why The 1958 have organised another big protest prior to Aston Villa’s visit on Sunday.

Take a look at some of the reactions to Ratcliffe’s latest offer below:
