Updated Information Regarding INEOS’s Agreement With The Glazer Family

Sky has expected an official announcement from the club “early next week” regarding the ownership of the Red Devils and the future of the Glazers. Ratcliffe and INEOS, a sports investment firm and petrochemical behemoth founded by the Englishman, are to acquire 25% of the club, following a year of speculation regarding the Glazers’ future. Significantly, the agreement is anticipated to grant the company the authority to designate key personnel and oversee transfers at the club. Nevertheless, specifics regarding the operational implementation of this agreement remain undisclosed.



The cost of the United quarter stake is estimated to be approximately £1.3 billion, but this figure is subject to alter based on the specifics of the Class A share acquisition. Class A shares are listed on the New York Stock Exchange and investors are required to submit and approve a formal offer.With an anticipated price of $33, the business magnate is anticipated to pay more than the shares are worth at face value. Additionally, it is believed that Ratcliffe has reached a deal with the Glazers and their allies to acquire 25% of the club’s B shares, which grants Ratcliffe’s corporation the right to vote at board meetings. This will cause INEOS to occupy two seats on the board.



A Chelsea takeover that was previously postponed may be pushed back once more.

Despite anticipation from supporters that the investment would be finalized months ago, INEOS has already experienced a delay in its completion. Prior information indicated that an October board meeting would include a vote regarding the sale of a portion of the club to the preferred purchaser. The vote, however, failed to materialize, and any rumors of progress toward a resolution vanished.



A further postponement of the acquisition may instill concern among supporters, given the Glazers’ notoriously firm control over the club. Although the completion of the transaction may take longer than anticipated, an announcement by the end of the week seems extremely probable. The disclosed information regarding prospective share prices and board positions indicates that the club is optimistic that the takeover will be completed shortly.In the aftermath of Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement ten years ago, a great number of United supporters will be frantic for new senior-level leadership. Since the renowned manager’s departure from the sport in the summer of 2013, the club has failed to secure a solitary Premier League or Champions League championship.



Consequentially, the club struggles on the field. The Reds are seventh after suffering yet another setback over the weekend, a 1-0 loss away to Newcastle. Erik ten Hag’s squad was in disarray. They have suffered six league losses, the most of any team in the top half of the table, and are in danger of being eliminated from the UEFA Champions League group stage due to a string of disappointing results and performances in Europe.
