The 71-year-old Ineos chief, aiming to assume control of sporting operations at Old Trafford with a £1.3 billion proposal for a 25 percent stake, plans to overhaul the club’s footballing operations.

Despite the club’s challenging start to the season under manager Erik ten Hag, Ratcliffe is likely to seek Ferguson’s counsel before implementing changes, including the appointment of a new sporting director.

Recent reports indicate that Ten Hag retains the full backing of Ferguson, who is expected to advocate keeping faith with the former Ajax chief.

Ten Hag has built credibility with a successful maiden year, securing the Carabao Cup and guiding United to a third-place finish in the Premier League.

As Ratcliffe and Ineos reshape Manchester United’s future, Ten Hag is poised for a significant role, while other members of the current hierarchy, such as chief executive Richard Arnold and director of football John Murtough, are likely to depart.

The imminent ratification of Ratcliffe’s deal, set to occur during the international break, follows weeks of speculation and confirms an agreement with the Glazer family.
