British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s firm Ineos has officially stated an interest in buying Manchester United.
United’s owners the Glazer family said in November that they were considering selling the club as they “explore strategic alternatives”.
Ineos said the company had “formally put ourselves into the process”.
Ratcliffe made an unsuccessful late £4.25bn offer to buy Chelsea last year after Russian owner Roman Abramovich put the London club up for sale.
Following his failure to acquire Chelsea, Ratcliffe said he would have tried to buy United but, after meeting with brothers Joel and Avram Glazer, he stated that they did not want to sell.
However, since then the Glazers have changed their stance and he has now joined the bidding process.
