Sir Jim Ratcliffe has «set out five new rules for the Man United manager to follow» as the co-owners continue to make dramatic changes after a disappointing season.


Sir Jim Ratcliffe has reportedly laid out five new rules that the Manchester United manager will have to follow.

Doubts still remain over Erik ten Hag’s future, despite the 54-year-old making one last plea to keep his job after beating Manchester City to lift the FA Cup trophy on Saturday.

The likes of Roberto De Zerbi, Kieran McKenna, Thomas Frank, Thomas Tuchel and Mauricio Pochettino are part of the contingency planning if The Hag leaves as expected.

As reported by The Sun, whoever walks through the door will have to adhere to the strict rules set by Ratcliffe as he continues to make dramatic changes after a disappointing season.

The new manager will have to follow the style of play set by new technical director Jason Wilcox.

New co-owner Ratcliffe also wants the manager to agree to a new recruitment model that will see five new players under the age of 25 walk through the Old Trafford doors in a bid to make the squad stronger, fitter and faster.

The British billionaire is keen to find gems rather than spend huge sums on established big names.

Ratcliffe was recently asked if he would make a move for free agent Kylian Mbappe this summer, telling The Geraint Thomas Cycling Club podcast: “I’d rather find another Mbappe than spend a fortune trying to buy success. Not so smart is it, buying Mbappe your way?

«Anyone could figure that out. It is much more difficult to find the next Mbappe or Jude Bellingham or the next Roy Keane.”

Another order from Ratcliffe will be that the manager will be asked which areas he wants to strengthen rather than the players he wants to sign.

The changes will be overseen by Ineos sporting director Sir Dave Brailsford (R) and new technical director Jason Wilcox (L).

The club is still without incoming chief executive Omar Berrada and incoming sporting director Dan Ashworth, a delay which saw Brailsford’s involvement increase ahead of the summer window.

United are now carrying out an end-of-season check before making a decision on the Ten Hag, who has been watched by Brailsford and Wilcox in recent months.

The Hag went on holiday on Sunday after sending a defiant message to his bosses that he would «go somewhere else to win trophies» if they didn’t want him.
