Sir Jim Ratcliffe has ramped up his efforts to buy Manchester United by hiring Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan to advise him during the takeover process.

Britain’s richest man confirmed in January that he intends to try and wrest control at Old Trafford from the Glazer family, who announced in November that the club are up for sale. Ratcliffe was the first party to go public with his interest but reports earlier this week claimed he will face competition from a group of Qatari investors.

Formal offers for United are set to be submitted imminently as Avram and Joel Glazer look to sell up and bring to an end nearly 18 years of unpopular ownership by their family. Ratcliffe is cutting no corners as he bids to take control and has acquired the services of Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan to assist him.
