Manchester United’s potential new owner Jim Ratcliffe’s net worth - compared to Newcastle United, Leeds & others

The 13-time Premier League champions could have a new owner if recent speculation is to be believed.

Speculation has mounted in recent days over the future of Manchester United.

Red Devils supporters are mounting protests against the Glazer family as their ownership of the club continues to provoke ire among the Old Trafford faithful.

Further demonstrations are set to take place on Monday night when Erik ten Hag’s side face bitter rivals Liverpool and go looking for their first point of the Premier League season.

But there is some hope for supporters with the news Sir Jim Ratcliffe is considering an offer to buy a stake in the club over the coming weeks.

Sky Sports have reported Ratcliffe’s interest is ‘serious’ and a number of former Red Devils players and Sir David Brailsford will also be involved in any bid.
