Sir Jim Ratcliffe has officially acquired a 25% stake in Manchester United, having been chosen at Qatar’s expense (Emir Tamim, already owner of PSG, had commissioned the head of the national bank, Sheikh Jassim, to convince the Glazer siblings with billions). The wealthy British businessman will be putting managers in charge of the club, and has reportedly asked for Roberto De Zerbi to come in if Erik ten Hag is sacked, as Football Insider reports.

Las Anglophone. But he has waited in vain for the position of coach of the French national team (Didier Deschamps has even extended his contract until the 2026 World Cup) and will not be returning to Real Madrid, as Carlo Ancelotti will soon be extending his lease. The 98 Ballon d’Or winner thus has a chance to take up an XXL challenge.

Ten Hag’s fate could well be decided over the next few days, with the Premier League matches against Aston Villa at Old Trafford on Tuesday evening and Nottingham on Saturday. Having been knocked out of the Champions League and indeed of all European competitions, Man United have slumped to eighth in the league in recent weeks. The crisis is total, and a change of coach is looming.
