Manchester United secured a significant victory against Aston Villa with a 2-1 win at Villa Park. INEOS is poised to take over football operations at Manchester United following the approval of Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s £1.3 billion deal for a 29% stake. In preparation for this transition, the 71-year-old tycoon intends to implement substantial changes, expressing his determination to be “ruthless” both on and off the pitch.
The impending overhaul is expected to witness the departure of several high-profile figures, including players such as Raphael Varane, Anthony Martial, Victor Lindelof, and Aaron Wan-Bissaka. Luke Shaw’s recurring injury concerns have raised doubts about his reliability, with his recent withdrawal from the victorious match against Aston Villa indicating the possibility of another spell on the sidelines. While the 28-year-old defender has shown his quality when fit, his consistent unavailability may not be suitable for a club striving to compete at the highest level.
