Sir Jim Ratcliffe ‘wants PSG’s Luis Campos as Man Utd sporting director if he is successful with takeover bid’

SIR JIM RATCLIFFE is reportedly looking to make PSG’s Luis Campos sporting director at Manchester United if he buys the club.

The British billionaire revealed last month that he would “definitely” be interested in buying the Red Devils should they become available.

And Mancunian Ratcliffe, who has been a lifelong United supporter, is already making behind-the-scenes recruitment plans.

According to Le Parisien, the Ineos boss would try to lure Campos away from the French giants to take on a similar role at Old Trafford.

United have John Murtough as their first director of football – with Andy O’Boyle as his deputy and Darren Fletcher as technical director.

However, being able to land Campos would be a huge coup.

The Portuguese worked three successful years ago as Monaco’s sporting director as a scout and analyst under Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

He also had a brief stint at Lille but took up the position as PSG’s football advisor this summer, where he will focus on “the performance, the recruitment and the organizational side” of the club.

However, Ratcliffe and United would need to act quickly to secure Campos as Chelsea are also interested.

Todd Boehly is said to have offered the 58-year-old a whopping £7million a year – or £135,000 a week – to switch Parc des Princes for Stamford Bridge and oversee the Blues’ transfer strategy with Graham Potter.

News of Ratcliffe’s interest in United came as the widely unpopular Glazer family, who own the club, are said to be open to selling a minority stake.

After the big fan protests against the Americans in recent years, the pressure to give something has increased.

Ratcliffe, 69, grew up on a council estate in Failsworth, Manchester, and earned his living as CEO of multinational chemical company Ineos.

Its value is now said to have fallen from a peak of $15 billion.

The 69-year-old failed in a last-ditch attempt to buy Chelsea in early May.

However, as the owner of FC Lausanne-Sport in Switzerland and French club Nice, he has a lot of experience in sports and especially football.

And should Ratcliffe complete a dramatic takeover of United, he could have help from Formula 1 star Lewis Hamilton.

The seven-time world champion rivaled Boehly’s successful Chelsea bid but revealed he “would like to get more involved in football” and has an existing relationship with Ratcliffe, whose company Ineos sponsors the Mercedes F1 team.

As of today, however, the Glazers are ignoring Sir Jim’s efforts to buy the 20-time English champions.
