Premier League giants Manchester United announced on Tuesday, Sir Jim Ratcliffe as the new co-owner, after the INEOS chief completed the 27.7 percent [£1.03bn] partial takeover.

In a seismic shift at Old Trafford, United's fate is poised for a major transformation as Ratcliffe orchestrates a colossal summer clearout, with as many as 11 players on the list, as per ESPN.

The British businessman and INEOS performance director Sir Dave Brailsford have been overseeing club operations in recent months and reports suggest the owners have come to a conclusion that a mass exodus is required to reshape the squad which can compete for top honors in the Premier League as well as in Europe next season and beyond.

The Red Devils do have money to spend this summer, but, they also have to comply with FFP rules and regulations. As a result, Ratcliffe is ready to sanction the sale of several big names in the squad.

Former club captain Harry Maguire, along with defensive partner Raphael Varane and Victor Lindelof are among those being considered to lead the exodus.

Brazilian midfielder Casemiro, with Christian Eriksen, Scott McTominay and Aaron Wan-Bissaka will be shown the exit doors, provided suitable bids are offered.

Donny van de Beek, Jadon Sancho, Facundo Pellistri and Brandon Williams are presently out on loan, but, all of them will be sold at the end of the season.

Meanwhile, Anthony Martial will not be offered a new deal at Old Trafford and he is set to leave for free.

The Red Devils are aiming to add more firepower to the squad as they search for a new striker and want to sign a defender as well before making moves to strengthen other areas.

The United chiefs’ revolutionary revival in the next few months showcases their vision and motivation for Manchester United’s resurgence.

The club have been successful in generating their highest player trading profit over the last year, since 2009, when Cristiano Ronaldo left for Real Madrid. The hierarchy believe that more outgoings are needed in order to bolster the budget ahead of significant investments in the transfer market.

However, Ratcliffe will be careful of not making extravagant alterations to the roster or else United could mirror the effects that have taken a toll on Chelsea under Todd Boehly.
