Ratcliffe, hopeful of securing a minority stake in the club, is anticipated to take a leading role in shaping recruitment strategies once his proposal is ratified.

With a focus on optimizing the squad, the January transfer window is expected to be pivotal, providing Ratcliffe with the opportunity to make significant changes.

Casemiro and Varane, high-profile signings from Real Madrid with a combined cost of £112 million, have yet to live up to expectations.

Despite their past success, their current performances and hefty contracts are raising concerns.

Casemiro, a crucial figure in Erik ten Hag’s debut season, is now grappling with fitness issues, and a potential move to Saudi Arabia has been rumored.

Varane, on the other hand, appears to have strained his relationship with the United boss following his omission from the Manchester derby.

Harry Maguire has seized the opportunity in Varane’s absence, leading to speculation about the French center-back’s future.

Bayern Munich has expressed interest, but financial constraints, particularly regarding wages, could pose a challenge.

The January transfer window will serve as Ratcliffe’s first opportunity to shape the squad, with a keen eye on underperforming players.

The arrival of Sir Dave Brailsford alongside Ratcliffe further underscores the commitment to revitalizing Manchester United.
