Jim Ratcliffe turns down chance to buy Liverpool, but set to make Manchester United offer

Foot Mercato are reporting that OGC Nice owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has rejected the chance to purchase Liverpool, in favour of launching an official bid to sign Premier League rivals Manchester United. 

Both clubs are looking for sellers simultaneously. Ratcliffe currently owns Ligue 1 side Nice and has repeatedly stated his commitment to the club. Back in April, the owner of INEOS formulated a late, and ultimately unsuccessful bid to sign Chelsea. 

However, Ratcliffe isn’t interested in buying Liverpool, who have been put up for sale by FSG. The bank Goldman Sachs had offered him the chance to buy the Merseyside club, but Ratcliffe is more interested in Premier League rivals Manchester United. 

Ratcliffe, who is a fan of the Manchester club, wishes to make an official offer. The sale is being managed by the bank Rain’, and no price has yet been set, contrary to reports in the British media that a bid between €5-9m will be required for the Glazers to sell. 

According to Foot Mercato, Ratcliffe doesn’t want to pass up the opportunity to buy Manchester United, and any offer made would reportedly be “worthy of being accepted” by the club’s current owners.
