Man Utd news LIVE: Bayern Munich build-up, Ten Hag confirms ‘break clause’, Ratcliffe’s dig

By Kieran King

Incoming Manchester United investor Sir Jim Ratcliffe has fired a pointed dig at club captain Bruno Fernandes.

Ratcliffe, 71, is expected to complete his £1.25billion deal before Christmas, with the INEOS chief set to take charge of footballing operations once he is situ.

It had been expected that Ratcliffe’s deal was going to be completed during the November international break, only for delays to hit.

United had hoped to get Ratcliffe’s deal confirmed ahead of Tuesday’s crunch Champions League clash against Bayern Munich, but it appears they are going to have to wait a little bit longer.

This could impact the Red Devils’ January transfer plans, although Ratcliffe is unsure about making wholesale changes this winter.

However, Ratcliffe has already made his feelings clear on one member of the United squad, as per the Daily Mail.

In the opening page of his new book, Ratcliffe spoke about his travels and recalled a trip around the Pacific Ocean.

During this time, he ‘felt the ground tremble every time a Cook Islander smashed into another in a local rugby match’ and added that one player was ‘carted off in the back of a pick-up with a broken leg’.

Ratcliffe then noted that experience was ‘a far cry from Bruno Fernandes clutching his untouched face in the Liverpool debacle recently’.

This is presumably referring to Fernandes’ performance and play-acting during United’s humbling 7-0 defeat against Jurgen Klopp’s Reds back in March.
