Man Utd working on 'three marquee arrivals' to continue Sir Jim Ratcliffe revolution

Man Utd working on 'three marquee arrivals' to continue Sir Jim Ratcliffe revolution

Manchester United are continuing to make wholesale challenges under the stewardship of Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

Manchester United are said to be working on three more marquee arrivals as Sir Jim Ratcliffe plans more wholesale changes at the club.

INEOS boss and Nice owner Ratcliffe has become a shareholder in his boyhood club, purchasing a 25 per cent stake worth more than £1 billion.

He and his team have been granted full control of footballing operations and are wasting no time in making major adjustments at Old Trafford.

Omar Berrada is joining from rivals Manchester City to replace Richard Arnold at CEO in a move fans are hugely excited about given his success as chief football operations officer across town.

But United are not stopping there and are planning a trio of new additions to take up key positions with the club.

Football Insider say that United are moving to hire a new sporting director, head of recruitment and technical chief scout in the coming weeks.

The new top brass want a new head of recruitment after a series of transfer mishaps in recent years, while a new scout at the top of the chain is required to find the next batch of talent.

Football negotiations manager Sam Barnett, who was in the role since in 2020, has been relieved of his duties and becomes the first major departure under the new regime.

The same outlet claims that United will be heavily restricted with what they can spend in the summer despite an injection of cash.

That's because, according to finance expert Kieran Maguire, the club still owe a record £364 million in transfer-related fees to other clubs.

They still have instalments due for players they have brought in.
