The CEO and football director could be forced out if Sir Jim Ratcliffe takes over part of Manchester United but the head coach Erik Ten Hag will stay. The INEOS company owner is reported to have negotiated a 25 percent minority stake that will see him take charge of Manchester United's football operations. His purchase of the club is expected to be ratified this week. The INEOS chief will then take immediate control of matters related to on-field performance. Manchester United's commercial and sporting operations will going forward be separated into two distinct arms. Ratcliffe's overhaul of performance operations will be prioritized over an upgrade of Old Trafford.
