Manchester United supporters have been waiting long enough for Sir Jim Ratcliffe's arrival to be ratified by the Premier League and finally, that confirmation has been announced.

Ratcliffe and INEOS' minority acquisition of the Reds is a changing of the guard at Old Trafford and will be celebrated by those who wished for the Glazers' oversight on the football project to end.

While the American family remaining at the club was not the outcome most supporters wanted, this is being deemed as the first step towards full control being relinquished.

At this stage, INEOS are no strangers to acquiring football clubs into their wide-ranging sports portfolio. Swiss club FC Lausanne-Sport and French club Nice are also in the project run by Ratcliffe's group.
