Manchester United is on the brink of receiving a boost with the ratification of Sir Jim Ratcliffe's 25% stake in the club. Ratcliffe, a lifelong Red Devil fan, has already agreed to invest $300 million into Old Trafford for future investment. The deal is expected to be ratified by the Premier League next week.
Manchester United confirmed in December that lifelong Red Devil fan Sir Jim Ratcliffe was set to take a 25% stake in the club, more than 12 months after the unpopular Glazer owners had announced their intentions to seek new investment.
Ratcliffe will have full sporting control over the club, with the power to revamp the stadium and training ground. The Glazers have agreed to give Ratcliffe this control, which is something that Manchester United fans will be delighted to hear. The deal is costing Ratcliffe in excess of £1.1 billion.
