Welsh midfielder Aaron Ramsey has provided an insight into life under INEOS, as the company continues their bid for Manchester United.

The former Arsenal midfielder has been speaking to L’Equipe about his career so far and life at current club Nice, who he joined on a free transfer in August last year.

The French club are owned by INEOS and English billionaire Sir James Arthur Ratcliffe, who bought the club for €100m in August 2019.

They are one of several sporting outfits which the company have invested in, with them also owning FC Lausanne-Sport as well as the Team Sky cycling franchise and Mercedes AMG F1 team.

He has long been keen on purchasing a Premier League team and was part of the bidding for Chelsea when Roman Abramovich was forced to sell, while rumours also put him among those potentially investing in West Ham in October last year.

He is now among the principal bidders for Manchester United, having submitted a bid with various other buyers as the Glazers look to sell up.

For some they would be the ideal new owners given their experience and Ratcliffe’s plans to turn Manchester United into a global force once again. Ramsey has experienced how they work first hand, and admits it is impressive.

“I spoke to several players about the club, and I was seduced by the INEOS project,” he said.

“To me everything was brilliant, from the vision of the club to the way they wanted to develop. I still wanted to play at a top level, to prove to myself that I could do it and this was the perfect place to show it.

“It was a great opportunity, and the project is very exciting. Obviously, you want to be in the best shape for the national team, but Nice is perfect for me.

“With the vision of INEOS, their experience in all sports, it’s only a matter of time for Nice to fight to play in the Champions League. It’s very exciting.”
