Arnold, who was appointed CEO in February 2022, replacing Ed Woodward, is expected to leave the club as Sir Jim Ratcliffe prepares to finalise Ineos&apos purchase of a 25 per cent stake in the club. The chemical giant is edging closer to completing a deal understood to be worth around 1.25billion.
As reported by the Manchester Evening News last week, Ratcliffe is understood to have held virtual meetings with United co-chairman Joel Glazer. They are believed to have discussed potential changes to United&aposs structure, including possible personnel changes.
Arnold&aposs expected departure will mark the first big-name exit of Ratcliffe&aposs plan to review the current sporting structure in place. Football director John Murtough is also thought to be at risk.
