Paperwork gaffe slows down ratification of Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s acquisition of OGC Nice

Nice-Matin reported earlier today that a planned meeting between OGC Nice’s current owners, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his team (the buyers) and the French football financial watchdog the DNCG was delayed owing to missing paperwork.

Both the current and future owners blame each other for this delay and a new date will have to be agreed imminently, OGC Nice’s summer transfer window depends on it.

A solution suggested by multiple parties is the possibility of a video conference, owing to the untimely nature of this acquisition, bang in the middle of individuals’ summer holidays.
