Following reports indicating that Manchester United may be barred from participating in the Europa League due to UEFA regulations, the club’s owners have issued a statement.

The recent surprise 2-1 victory over Manchester City in the FA Cup final secured United’s qualification for UEFA’s secondary tournament.

Consequently, Chelsea was relegated to the UEFA Conference League.

However, there’s a looming possibility that United might also be redirected to the Conference League due to UEFA regulations.

Earlier this season, Sir Jim Ratcliffe acquired a 27 per cent stake in Manchester United. Notably, his company INEOS also owns Nice, a French club that qualified for the Europa League this season based on their league position.

UEFA regulations stipulate that clubs owned by the same entity cannot compete in the same UEFA competitions.

With Nice securing a higher league position, they would maintain their spot in the Europa League, potentially displacing United to the Conference League.

In response, INEOS has issued a statement expressing confidence in resolving the situation.

They assert that they are engaged in direct discussions with UEFA and believe they have a viable solution to ensure both United and Nice can participate in the Europa League next season.

Moreover, Ratcliffe intends to increase his investment in Manchester United, potentially surpassing the 30 per cent ownership threshold that triggers multi-club ownership regulations.
