Current Manchester United the hierarchy hope to sell the club and transfer him before the summer.
This will allow the new owners to come in and plan adequately for the summer transfer window as well as deal with contract extensions.
It has been repeatedly stated that the Glazers will start accepting bids to buy United in mid-February.
Jim Ratcliffe, through his representative recently announced his intention to buy the club he supported since childhood.
Billionaire Ineos has confirmed it will bid for United, with interest from other players also expected.
It is known that the 71-year-old petrochemical magnate held talks with the Glazer family several hours before his public statement.
United has also opened up its ‘data room’ to potential candidates – an exercise that will allow them access to vital information as potential candidates prepare to express their interest in the Raine Group.
According to Italian transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the pressure is on as the Glazers look to leave quickly to avoid footing the bill for United’s summer spending spree.
Earlier this month, Romano reported that the current board members have promised Eric Ten Hag plenty of funds in the summer to strengthen his team.
However, it is unclear how this promise will be fulfilled if there is a changing of the guard at Old Trafford.
Romano said GiveMeSport: “It is very important that all board members and staff hope that everything can be completed before the summer.”
“This is being done to prepare for the summer transfer window and possibly help with a contract extension.”
