For the past decade, the skies over Manchester, England, have been “sky blue.
After the departure of the great Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013, the Red Devils plummeted. They haven’t won a single English Premier League (EPL) title since. While the EPL’s ‘absolute masters’ were falling, Manchester’s local rivals Manchester City were rising.
In the past decade, City has won six EPL titles. And last season, they won their first ever UEFA Champions League (UCL) title. In addition, City won a “treble” in England that only Manchester United has ever won. This season is also the strongest yet. They’re going for a fourth consecutive EPL title, something even United couldn’t do.
There’s no question about it. The strongest team in the world is City, and the sky is blue in Manchester.
United have had a real resurgence under Eric ten Haag, finishing third in the league and winning the League Cup last season and showing promise, but they’ve struggled early this season. At this rate, the gap between them and Man City will only widen.
Why United fell. Ferguson’s departure is one thing, but the Glazers are another. The theory is that they are blinded by their own interests and not the development of the team. In the meantime, British oil and chemical tycoon Jim Ratcliffe is in the process of buying a 25% stake in the club. Local media are reporting that it is almost a done deal.
If it happens, the Glazer family will have less say and Ratcliffe will have more influence. United fans are excited. 캡틴토토 주소
Ratcliffe is poised to revolutionize the club. He has emphasized that he will tear down the club’s outdated infrastructure and is reportedly preparing to hire Brighton and Hove Albion manager Roberto De Jervi after sacking Van Gaal. Changing the club’s infrastructure and head coach. Finally, a superstar signing.
Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe. Along with Man City’s Elling Holland, Mbappe is considered one of the best strikers in the game. To compete with City, they need a striker of Holland’s caliber, and United want Mbappe.
Then came the news that Real Madrid, who had been strongly linked to Mbappe, had given up on signing him. However, there have been a few clubs here and there that have shown interest in signing him. EPL clubs with deep pockets are particularly keen on Mbappe. Most recently, Liverpool have been linked with a move for Mbappe.
However, it has been claimed that United are the favorites to land the player. According to Football Insider, “Real Madrid have left Mbappe. United are one of the EPL teams in the race to sign Mbappe. According to an inside source, United, Man City and Chelsea are the three EPL clubs that could fund a bid for Mbappe.”
“If Ratcliffe secures a 25 percent stake in the club, United could be in the best position to sign Mbappe,” the report added.
