Lewis Hamilton keen on joint Manchester United bid with Jim Ratcliffe


Sir Lewis Hamilton has answered questions about his possible involvement in the Jim Ratcliffe consortium’s takeover of Manchester United.

The seven-time Formula 1 champion, along with tennis legend Serena Williams, is part of the Sir Martin Broughton consortium keen to buy Chelsea.

Rumor has it that the two sporting legends, Williams and Hamilton, have pledged £10m each as established investors. They ultimately lost to a consortium led by Todd Boehly, who bought the London clothing company.

Hamilton was asked if he was interested in a possible takeover The Red Devils are in the Netherlands ahead of tomorrow’s Grand Prix.

To which he replied: “It’s the first time I’ve heard of it, so since I’m in Namibia, I don’t have time to catch up with Jim, which I have to do because he goes to Namibia a lot. . ”

The 37-year-old could not rule out his involvement in a Ratcliffe-sponsored takeover bid.

“Part of Jim’s boss, but also a partner – I would say we’re more of a partner because we’re together and I hope to do something with Jim in the future and build with him.”

“I don’t know where or what it would be, so I really can’t say.”

However, he said he is actively looking to get more involved with sports teams to increase representation at the elite level.

“I want to be more and more involved with the team because I really believe in black ownership.”

“There is no sport. Again, black capital really lacks this.

Hamilton’s words indicate he is welcome to be part of the consortium that took over the Manchester club from the Glazers, who have been in power at Old Trafford since 2003.
