There are fears new Man Utd owners could disrupt Erik ten Hag’s rebuild

There are fears at Manchester United that new owners could jeopardise the next phase of Erik ten Hag’s rebuild, reports ESPN.

The Glazers have put the club for sale and whoever wins the bidding war may want to make significant changes to the club’s structure.

People at Old Trafford are afraid what happened at Chelsea after Todd Boehly took over could happen at Man United.

The American changed Thomas Tuchel seven games into the season and replaced him with Graham Potter.

Boehly also had different ideas from the German manager and reportedly suggested which formation to play.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe, Sheikh Jassim Bin Hamad Al Thani and Thomas Zilliacus are all looking to complete a full takeover.

Whoever buys Man United may have ideas of how the squad should operate.

They could stick with Ten Hag, but new owners often have advisers with different ideas.

The Dutchman wants new signings recruited before the pre-season tour of the United States in July.

It remains to be seen if new owners would be in place by then.

The Glazers could still opt against selling if nobody meets their £6 billion asking price.

The interested trio submitted revised bids last week, but none of them tabled close to the fee the owners want.

A third round of offers could follow, or a preferred bidder could be named.

The Glazers and the bidders could also reach a compromise, but nothing is guaranteed.

The season ends in May and Ten Hag would love to know what the plan is before then.

A takeover must happen before the summer transfer window goes into full swing, and time is ticking.
