It looks like this is in the verge of going through.
Potentially it could be another artificially inflated club riding high in the Prem. It is supposed to be a separate Saudi entity from the ruling family/government, but I don’t see how that can be properly enforced.
Are the Prem being weak on the fit and proper person test?
Will the new owners throw money at them?
Will FFP offer any sort of meaningful resistance?
Big question marks over the whole thing. Conceivably it strengthens the case for our owners to exit, or try the European Super League again in another guise.
Barcode fans will be happy. Starved of success they will be thinking of better times to come, on the pitch.
