According to SPORTbible, the British billionaire is keen to restore United's lost glory after he recently completed his minority takeover of the club.

The Red Devils have endured their fair share of struggles under Erik ten Hag this season, with the club in danger of ending the season without a trophy.

A top-four finish is currently the club's only ambition, alongside pursuing the FA Cup.

In a bid to get the club back to the top, Ratcliffe is said to be keen to sanction the exit of a number of players.

Which players could Man United sell?

ESPN reports at least 11 players are on the chopping board ahead of the ambitious clear-out plan.

Some potential departures include Jadon Sancho, Donny van de Beek, Facundo Pellistri, and Christian Eriksen.

Raphael Varane and Casemiro are also said to face an uncertain future at Old Trafford, while Harry Maguire and Scott McTominay could also be offloaded.

Others include Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, and Brando Williams.

Sancho, Van de Beek, and Pellistri are all currently out on loan until the end of the ongoing season.

Sancho was shipped out to Borussia Dortmund after he fell out with ten Hag, and he is unlikely to return to the fold.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe speaks on Ten Hag's future

Earlier, Sports Brief reported on Ratcliffe reflecting on the future of ten Hag as Manchester United's manager.

The British billionaire has insisted that he intends to take the Red Devils back to the glory days not witnessed in the red side of Manchester since the days of Sir Alex Ferguson.

The club has already brought in Omar Berrada as the new CEO, with Dan Ashworth expected to join soon as the new sporting director.
