Sir Jim Ratcliffe edges closer to signing top Man Utd target from Premier League rival.



Sir Jim Ratcliffe approaches completion of a transfer to Manchester United from a Premier League rival.Manchester United are

seeking to appoint new personnel to key positions, and Sir Jim Ratcliffe is prepared to spend exorbitant amounts to acquire Newcastle manager Dan Ashworth, who has performed admirably at St. James’s Park.Sir Jim Ratcliffe is eager to acquire Newcastle manager Dan Ashworth and is willing to pay any amount the Magpies request.


His minority acquisition of Manchester United has recently bestowed upon him authority over the organization’s football operations. United are presently without a number of significant personnel due to a reorganization in which Ratcliffe is seeking to appoint his own individuals.


Ashworth, who excelled for the FA and Brighton and Hove Albion prior to Newcastle’s approach, was designated as a primary target by the Ineos executive. The club is in the process of replacing departing sporting director John Murtough.


According to a previous report by The Athletic, Newcastle, whose success can be attributed to Ashworth’s efforts, would request a seven-figure sum in compensation in exchange for the release of one of their most valuable assets. It is now recognized that Ratcliffe is willing to expend any means necessary to secure Ashworth’s support.


United intends to appoint a new sporting director and head of recruitment to collaborate with Sir Dave Brailsford, Jean-Claude Blanc, and Ratcliffe, with Ineos having final approval on key decisions, including transfers, according to sources with knowledge of the situation.


Despite having only been with Newcastle for eighteen months, Ashworth has already made an immediate impact. United, who are undergoing their worst decision in decades, have yet to achieve success with their sporting structure and key decision makers. He currently appoints to the top of a list of individuals that the club considers.Gary Neville recently criticized the club on his Sky Sports podcast for failing to fill important positions: “A CEO is not present.” In the absence of a sporting director. In the absence of a competent chief of recruitment. These are the highest three positions, excluding the manager, in a football club. The aforementioned positions constitute the uppermost three in a football club, with the fourth being that of a manager, which renders that quartet exceedingly formidable and confined.
