Sir Jim Ratcliffe will “mould” his new Manchester United around two players



| Last Updated:


Sir Jim Ratcliffe is planning on building his new Manchester United around two players, according to recent reports.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe‘s 27.7% stake in Manchester United has brought INEOS to the forefront of world football. The petrochemical company’s sports division is now in full control of all sporting activities at Old Trafford.

In addition, INEOS has brought a new-found hope to the club, and there has been much speculation as to which players and staff will stay and leave this summer, including Erik ten Hag.

However, Ratcliffe and his team have already reportedly identified two players within the current squad around whom they want to build their vision of Manchester United from next season onwards.

The first is Alejandro Garnacho. According to talkSPORT, Ratcliffe has made it clear that he does not plan on cashing in on Garnacho, despite recent links to Real Madrid.

The report explains that Garnacho’s attitude around United’s Carrington training complex has impressed and that INEOS has identified Garnacho as a player he can mould the club’s future around.

The second is Rasmus Højlund. A report from last month detailed that INEOS see the 21-year-old Danish international as the long-term first-choice striker at Old Trafford and that next summer will consist of finding a new striker who can complement him.

United have been linked with three names in particular: Benjamin Sesko, Evan Ferguson, and Joshua Zirkzee, all of whom have tabs kept on them ahead of the summer window.
