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.

The message to the club’s workforce is very clear: Nice’s future plans are unrelated to any possible ownership of Manchester United, and according to L’Équipe, INEOS has no plans to sell the Riviera club. Nice won’t merge with the Premier League team or establish an affiliate.

Romain Molina asserted that INEOS would seek to sell Nice. According to the French journalist, the club’s owners have already started looking for new buyers and have made Saudi Arabia an offer. Particularly, the Gulf State is interested in purchasing Olympique de Marseille, a local competitor.

One of the largest and most fascinating corporations in the world, INEOS, owns a number of sports teams and is confident that its approach to club management will aid in the growth of a powerful team that can eventually consistently play at the European level.

With a keen eye for efficiency and a concentration on expenses across all of its businesses, INEOS acquisitions strive for value and opportunity for growth.
