Rumour on Skunkers


Recommended Posts

If this goes through I can see it being the straw that breaks the camels back. Platinis head will explode at the thought of 4 english teams getting to the champions league semis and he will rush through some sort of legislation on it

Doesn't matter though surely. EU legislation trumps Uefa rules. Basically he's powerless unless he lobby Brussels I'd have thought.

There'd probably be reasonable support for the whole of France to strike until they did though. <_<

Alternatively they could use the other method which is telling the EU to :D until they get what they want, at which point the EU backs down.

The French might not take on a battleship, but they'll sink an unarmed diving boat that's annoying them as soon as look at it. :D

A KUWAITI billionaire was last night closing in on Newcastle.

 

Businessman Nasser Al-Kharafi is in serious discussions about buying the club for £300million.

 

Sources close to Al-Kharafi claim meetings have been taking place this week with a view to making owner Mike Ashley a firm offer.

 

The Toon deal will be channelled through an Abu Dhabi company but Al-Kharafi is the man behind it. He is worth £9billion and is listed as the world's 48th richest man.

 

Al-Kharafi made his money in construction and engineering and was linked with the club last month.

 

At the time a spokesman claimed there was "nothing serious going on". But Al-Kharafi and his family have been studying documents about Newcastle's financial state and are ready to make their move.

 

A source close to the family said: "Newcastle intrigues them and there's a real chance they could get the club.

 

"It is possible the deal could be done by next week."

 

Baaah, £9 billion? Pffft, bloody pocket change that like, he'd be another Ashley <_<
