Dwight Yorke has welcomed the imminent partial takeover of Manchester United by Sir Jim Ratcliffe as a step in the right direction and says they need to win the league to attract the best players.
Sir Jim Ratcliffe's partial 25% takeover of Manchester United looks to be nearing a conclusion. Former Manchester United striker Yorke told AltIndex: "Sir Jim Ratcliffe is coming now and he's bought 25% of the club.
"It's hard to comment on the details, but that tells me he won't be in full control, so at least that's a quarter of the club in the right direction!
"It may not have full control, but it gives Ratcliffe enough to get the club to a certain standard. You need to win the domestic league to start attracting the best players, and if we don't do that, we can forget about Mbappe right now. You have to win and show intent to compete against City and Liverpool."
Ratcliffe and his Ineos consortium are in the final stages of the negotiations for him to purchase 25 percent of the club’s shares for a fee of around £1.3bn. Once that is agreed, the deal will need to be ratified with the Premier League while there will also be a gap in order to comply with public company regulations.
Manchester United willing to listen to offers
Meanwhile, the Sun report United are willing to consider offers for the 'underperforming trio' of Antony, Jadon Sancho and Anthony Martial.
