Fans told if £1.19 Trillion Saudi Group will complete Chelsea deal
Manchester United legend Garry Neville is unsure if Saudi Media group’s rumoured £2.7 billion bid to buy Chelsea will be successful.
Chelsea have been in the headlines alot over the past few weeks ever since the news broke that Roman Abramovic had to put the club up for sale because of his close ally Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine
The club will need a new Government licence for the sale after owner Roman Abramovich was sanctioned and his assets frozen, and the deadline for bids has been delayed until this Friday, with more than 20 serious parties reportedly interested.
But now it seems that the club could become one one of the richest clubs in world football after Saudi Media Group have made a £2.7 billion offer to buy Chelsea Football Club.
The group’s owner Mohamed Alkhereiji is a Chelsea fan, and is leading a private consortium without any direct government links, and reports have claimed that there is also support in finding funding and partners from Mohammed bin Khalid Al Saud, but not financial backing from the businessman himself
The House of Saud are thought to have assets worth an astonishing £1.19trillion – which is far more than both Newcastle and Manchester City have at their disposal
But amid all the rumours, Neville has opened up and claimed that he does not believe that their move to buy the club will be successful: “I’d be amazed if the Saudi Media company is allowed to buy Chelsea football club off the back of what’s happened.
“I do think there is something absolutely coming on top very quickly when it comes to fit and proper persons’ test.
“It’s not resilient, it’s not independent, it’s not transparent. We don’t know what criteria hurdle the Saudis will have to jump through to get into this country.
“I was supportive of them coming in, even though I would probably reassess that after what’s happened in the last 10 days.”
Look, if the move is a successful one, then how could anybody stop the club as we are already one of the biggest clubs in the game, could you imagine if they also had all that money to play with?
