Former United director Michael Knighton is preparing a ‘hostile’ takeover bid but the British businessman is reportedly worth just £7million.

Nevertheless, he organizes a consortium to oust the Glazers – and wants help from his compatriot Sir Jim Ratcliffe.

With Ratcliffe’s help, Knighton is hoping to complete an outright purchase of the club, which Goal says could cost more than £5bn and eclipse Chelsea’s £2.5bn worth.

Ratcliffe, a Red Devils fan who tried to buy Chelsea a few months ago, is said to be keen to take over and is hoping to hold talks with the Glazers.

He’s reportedly willing to pay what it takes to complete a purchase AND is willing to put in what’s necessary to modernize a crumbling Old Trafford.

A spokesman said: “If the club is for sale then Jim is definitely a potential buyer.

“If such a thing were possible, we would be interested in talking about long-term ownership.

“This is not about money spent or money not spent.

“Jim is reviewing what can be done now and knowing how important the club is to the city it feels like the time has come for a reset.”

Ratcliffe grew up on a council estate in Manchester and made his living as CEO of INEOS, the multinational chemical company that sponsors the professional cycling team run by Sir Dave Brailsford.

He also has experience in football as the current owner of Ligue-Un team Nice and he also bought top Swiss football club FC Lausanne-Sport in 2017.

But Britain’s richest man reportedly has a net worth of £11billion – despite being once worth £15billion.

Fellow billionaire Elon Musk has also thrown his hat in the ring only to belatedly reveal it was a ruse – despite revealing he had supported United as a child.
