Sir Jim Ratcliffe has no intention to sell OGC Nice
Sir Jim Ratcliffe also owns the Ligue 1 club OGC Nice
According to L’Équipe, OGC Nice are not worried about the predicament concerning their INEOS owners. Les Aiglons is not anticipated to become a division of the Premier League team, despite Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s efforts to acquire a minority ownership in Manchester United.
Ratcliffe, who wants to acquire a 25% minority position in Manchester United, is the only bidder left after Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad al-Thani withdrew from the competition.
According to The Times, it is anticipated that INEOS will not only acquire a 25% interest but also gain influence over the sporting activities of the Premier League side.
But what effects will this have on OGC Nice, a team that has been owned by INEOS since 2019? The subject is not off-limits at Le Gym, and staff of the club have spoken about INEOS’ potential partnership with Manchester United.
