Sir Jim Ratcliffe to implement five rules to change everything at Manchester United!

Things need to change at United and this could help that happen the right way!

Manchester United minority stake holder Sir Jim Ratcliffe has come up with a cunning plan to get the Old Trafford club once again heading in the right direction. According to Neil Custis of The Sun, the Ineos chief executive officer has five rules to implement at the club this summer.

It has been heavily speculated that Erik ten Hag will lose his job this summer, but there has been nothing substantial coming out of the club to back that rumour at this time – I am not saying it is not going to happen, but revisionism is at play here in the world of the media. Funny that!

Speculation has linked Kieran McKennaMauricio PochettinoThomas TuchelGareth SouthgateThomas Frank and Graham Potter with the top job at United this summer – if they do sack Ten Hag. Whoever is in charge come the new season will have some new rules to follow.

An age limit of 25 will be set for incoming players. I think this is a good thing as United will not be left with an aging squad. No Galactico players will be brought to the club either – which is another good choice because good things have not come of this in the past.

The style of play will be set by the technical director of the club – Jason Wilcox. This is another good thing as it means the club will be running things – although some managers will be reluctant to come to a club in that situation as they would like overall control of the club in that respect.

Another transfer rule is that the manager will be asked which positions he needs to fill in the future, and will not recommend players. Ineos will send the manager three options per position to choose for the club – again I find this to be a major positive rather that the scatter gun approach of the past.

United have reportedly splurged £1.5 billion on players since Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the end of the 2012/13 season – in which United were last crowned as the Premier League champions. It is important that United steer clear of the likes of Kylian Mbappe, Neymar and the like.

United look to be spearheaded by new chief executive officer Omar Berrada who was poached from Manchester City, Dan Ashworth who is being prised from Newcastle United and Jason Wilcox – who is already at the club. These rules should be good for United and help steer the ship.

I support Manchester United, the greatest English football team to have ever existed. Bruno Fernandes is the latest in a long line of players with great ability to play for the club. I idolised Bryan Robson, David Beckham, Paul Scholes, and Eric Cantona growing up.
