Sir Jim Ratcliffe reportedly holds virtual meetings with the Glazers regarding changes he wants to make at Manchester United.
Ratcliffe is set to take a 25% stake at the club and looks to take control of the footballing department at Old Trafford, which is said to have been central to the conversations. The Ineos chief is waiting for his £1.3billion offer to be approved in the coming weeks.
And it seems that Ratcliffe is already getting his ducks in a row as the future of the club’s footballing department could see a restructuring with possible personnel changes mentioned.

According to the Manchester Evening News, United’s chief executive Richard Arnold and football director John Murtough are said to be at risk, amid a potential role for Ineos’ Director of Sport Sir Dave Brailsford muted in recent weeks.
Arnold only became chief executive in February 2022 after joining the club in 2007. While Murtough joined the club 10 years ago alongside David Moyes, being appointed inaugural football director in March 2021.

Although both Gary Neville and Cristiano Ronaldo have been critical over the club's facilities, which the Al-Nassr striker claimed hadn’t changed since his first spell at the club.
Question marks also remain around Erik ten Hag’s future, with Bruno Fernandes’ added time winner at Fulham on Saturday only slightly lifting the pressure following a miserable start to the season. However, for Ten Hag, it seems he will be given time by Ratcliffe who is said to agree with Sir Alex Ferguson’s position of ‘unwavering support’ for the Dutchman.
