After a year-long saga full of twists and turns, Manchester United fans can finally celebrate! Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the billionaire owner of INEOS, secured a 25% stake in the club for a cool £1.3bn. This marks a pivotal moment for the Red Devils, paving the way for potential improvements both on and off the pitch.

Ratcliffe's hands-on approach is a welcome change for many supporters who have criticized the Glazer family's long-distance ownership. He has promised to take control of soccer operations, including transfers, which begs the question: who might join forces with Erik ten Hague under Ratcliffe's reign?

Players in all positions

United need different types of reinforcements, and the prestigious portal "The Sun" presents some: Victor Osimen, the Nigerian goal machine from Napoli, could be the solution to United's lack of firepower up front.

His impressive goalscoring record speaks for itself, even if Napoli's recent contract extension could inflate his price. Frenkie de Jong, the Dutch midfield maestro currently at Barcelona, could bring much-needed creativity and control to the middle of the park.

De Jong came close to joining United last summer and with Ratcliffe in charge, a second attempt could be on the cards. A familiar face could return to the position of goalkeeper. David de Gea, released by Ten Hag in the summer but now a free agent, is rumored to be returning.

While not a long-term solution, his experience and talent could provide stability until a younger replacement is found. Finally, Bayern Munich's Serge Gnabry is a tantalizing prospect on the wing. Jadon Sancho's inconsistent form has left United thin on the flanks, and Gnabry's pace, goalscoring and winning mentality would be a huge asset.

Gonzalo Inacio, the Portuguese defender from Sporting Lisbon, is another name on the radar. His versatility and talent will strengthen United's back line, offering depth and quality in all defensive positions. These are just a few of the names being floated around and Ratcliffe's arrival promises a new era for Manchester United.

With his financial support and passion for the club, fans can finally dream big again. The transfer window opens in January, and who knows what exciting names could walk through the doors of Old Trafford.
