Hamilton hints on interest in Man United takeover bid

Formula One star Lewis Hamilton has suggested that he could join Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s potential purchase of Manchester United.

Hamilton has already crossed paths with Ratcliffe as he was a rival in the takeover of Chelsea before the London club was sold to American Todd Boehly.

Ratcliffe is estimated to be worth £15billion and is believed to be Britain’s richest man.

However there has been little progress in his attempts to complete a takeover at Manchester United, which fans have been hoping to see due to their fury with the Glazers, the current club owners due to a lack of investment.

Hamilton was ask about the potential takeover while he was at the Dutch Grand Prix this weekend, he said: ‘It’s the first time I’ve heard of it.

‘I haven’t had time to catch up with Jim since I was in Namibia (during the mid-season break).

‘I haven’t had a call from him asking if I want to be involved in that just yet but I do want to get more and more involved in teams.

‘But Jim’s part-boss and part-partner, I would say we’re more partners because we’re in this together and I hope in the future to do something with Jim and build with him, I don’t know when that’ll be or what that’ll be.’

The Glazers are believed to ignoring Ratcliffe’s efforts to buy the club that he supported as a child.

Hamilton is equally serious about sports ownership as he admitted that his attempts to buy Chelsea was so he could improve sports diversity and inclusivity while making the Blues a profit making organisation.

The Mercedes driver has expanded his sporting portfolio as he recently invested into the Denver Broncos NFL Team.

Hamilton added: ‘I really do believe in black ownership which there’s a lack of in sports.

‘When I do get involved for example with the Broncos, I really try and focus on what I can do within the team.
