  • Arsenal Denies Takeover

    Arsenal Owner Stan Kroenke has reportedly been offered $2.25B for the club.

    Arsenal is "poised to be subjected to" a £1.5B ($2.25B) takeover bid from a Middle East consortium in the next few weeks, according to Jason Burt of the London TELEGRAPH. The bid would be "the world’s biggest ever" for a football club, dwarfing the £800M paid by the Glazers for ManU, and "will be backed by funds from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates." The group does "not want their identities made public yet," but a bid source said that the intention is to "buy out Arsenal’s American owner, Stan Kroenke, whose perceived weak stewardship of the club has also been called into question by frustrated supporter groups."
