Ever since the Glazer family bought Manchester United, their fans have wanted them far away from Old Trafford.
The club have been in constant debt since taking over, and there have been some who have tried to wrangle the Premier League side from their hands, to no avail.
The American family are asking for a huge sum to sell Manchester United, but following a failure to buy Chelsea, which went to Todd Boehly, Sir Jim Ratcliffe has turned his attention to the Red Devils.
He’s publicly said he was interested in purchasing the Old Trafford side, and while that has died down of late in the press, it doesn’t mean that he has given up.
In an article claiming that Luis Campos had been approached by Chelsea to take over as their transfer chief for the next two windows, Le Parisien add a little bit about Manchester United’s interest in the Portuguese as well.
While the Glazers have set an asking price of €4bn, Ratcliffe still seems keen, and ‘if successful, also wants Campos to lead the club’s sporting policy’.
This by no means suggests a bid is close, but it does give an idea of where the plan is at and what direction they would want to go should they manage to convince the current Manchester United owners to sell.
Le Parisien also add that ‘no clause’ exists in Campos’ Paris Saint-Germain contract, meaning that he can go if he wants to, and the only condition he has is that he cannot work for more than three clubs at one time, currently in charge at the Ligue 1 side and helping out Celta Vigo.
This means that should he want to leave and work for Chelsea, they would simply have to pay some sort of compensation to the French club, ‘just like a transfer’.
