How Man Utd could line up with Jim Ratcliffe's billions spent in transfer market, including Real Madrid's Casemiro | The Sun

MANCHESTER UNITED could be set for an incredible change at the top level.

That’s because British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe wants to BUY the club.

Fans wishing of a post-Glazer era may soon find themselves living in dreamland.

And should a stunning takeover go through, Ratcliffe is sure to invest properly in Erik ten Hag’s squad.

But who exactly would Ratcliffe target if he was in charge of United?

Presuming a new sporting director was brought in and Ten Hag’s targets remain the same, the team could have an exciting new look.

But Ten Hag would like a new right-back, and it’s reckoned he’s chasing Borussia Dortmund’s Thomas Meunier.

Further up the pitch is where it gets exciting for United.

They are desperate for a technical anchorman after missing out on Juventus’ Adrien Rabiot.

And they are now in talks for Real Madrid superstar Casemiro – who has won FIVE Champions League titles.

Barcelona’s Frenkie de Jong also remains on United’s shortlist despite being linked with a move to Chelsea.

Other midfield targets include Brighton’s Moises Caicedo and Lazio’s Sergej Milinkovic-Savic.

And United still have Bruno Fernandes and Christian Eriksen for playmaking options.

As for the attack, United are yet to see the best from Jadon Sancho.

And Cristiano Ronaldo is still expected to leave before deadline day while Marcus Rashford is wanted by Paris Saint-Germain.

That opens the door for several reinforcements, with Atletico Madrid duo Joao Felix and Matheus Cunha linked this week.

United also retain interest in Barcelona striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
