    And according to The Telegraph, billionaire Ratcliffe is expected to table a bid to buy the Old Trafford outfit.

    It comes just one month after Ratcliffe declared his interest in the club but claimed the Glazers were not interested in selling.

    Speaking in October, he said: “I met with Joel and Avram, and they are the nicest people, and they don’t want to sell it.

    “If it had been for sale in the summer, yes, we would probably have had a go, following on from the Chelsea thing.

    “But we can’t sit around hoping one day Manchester United will become available.”
