PSG Chairman’s Happy Concern: Where should I live?
Qatar seems to have had a lot of fun with the World Cup box office success. It is seeking to enter the Premier League based on its enormous financial power. All you have to do is pick where you want to live.
British media ‘Express’ reported on the 10th (Korean time) that ‘Manchester United are on the list of candidates for the acquisition of the club in Qatar’.
They are Qatar Sports Investments (QSI). The leader is Nasser al-Khelaifi. He already owns Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Realizing the influence of sports, QSI is pushing to enter the Premier League, the world’s largest soccer market.
Coincidentally, two teams of ‘Big Club’ were put up for sale. Manchester United and Liverpool are both looking for new owners. Manchester United is owned by the Glazer family and Liverpool by the Fenway Sports Group. The two have one thing in common: American capital.
The Express said: ‘Qatar is seriously considering buying Man United. Liverpool and Tottenham are also candidates. For now, it aims to secure a certain share, but it has not ruled out a complete takeover. Both the Glazer family and the Fenway Sports Group are ready to leave.”
Kelaifi has already started negotiations with Tottenham. Express said, ‘Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy held talks about Qatar’s investment potential. It is known that Kelaifi and Levy have already met in London.”토토사이트
However, it is speculated that Tottenham explored the possibility of attracting investment rather than a complete sale. Chairman Levy is famous for being a salty, but he led Tottenham well according to his own philosophy. It is interpreted that the current coach, Antonio Conte, actively wanted more support than in the past, and started to raise additional funds.
QSI also seems to be at a wait-and-see level. Rather than acquiring Manchester United or Liverpool at once, the intention is to gradually increase the stake and grasp the atmosphere.
Express said, ‘Qatar will strengthen its strategy of using sports to raise its national profile after the World Cup. The premier football league, the Premier League, is a good vehicle. In the long term, we have a vision to invest in South America, but in the short term, we have focused on the Premier League.”
