Boris has given his ‘indirect’ approval for Saudi Group to complete Chelsea deal
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has given his ‘indirect’ approval to Saudi Media’s Chelsea takeover bid with his ‘relationship’ admission.
On Monday, reports emerged suggesting Saudi Media Group had made a £2.7billion offer for Chelsea, but there has been alot of headlines suggesting that is a deal that the Premier League may not let happen
The Premier League faced a massive backlash when Saudi Arabia’s Public Investment Fund were allowed to buy Newcastle United, with LGBTQ+ rights not recognised in the country and their human rights records under increasing scrutiny.
However, they will be rather encouraged by what has been said by Johnson and Sport minister Nigel Huddleston regarding the important ‘relationship’ this country has with Saudi Arabia and the need for it to continue in a strong matter in the near and long-term future.
Johnson said: “Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are key international partners…We have long, long standing relationships with this part of the world and we need to recognise the very important relationship that we have.”
Huddlestone, despite agreeing with the sanction made against the Russian oligarch, just like Johnson, also spoke highly about the current relationship dynamics with Saudi Arabia when posed a difficult question about Newcastle’s Saudi owners.
“The UK’s relationship with Saudi Arabia is really important,” the sports minister told the Guardian. “Saudi Arabia is an important partner of the UK in investment, intelligence and culture.”
“We welcome Saudi Arabian investment. Many, many jobs in the UK are dependent on our relationship with the Saudis but we take the opportunity to talk frankly and openly with Saudi Arabia. We can have frank exchanges because of the nature of our relationship.”
Look, the new owner that buys Chelsea will be getting one of the best and biggest clubs in world football right now and if that happens to be the trillion backed Saudi group, then Fans would love it
They would instantly become the richest club in the world, although they would attract even more bad headlines
