Football Lookalikes: The man who bought Man City & the man who might buy Chelsea
Hmm, they could be twins
Dr Sulaiman al-Fahim, who led the takeover of Manchester City, has expressed an interest in leading a consortium to take over Chelsea. He said: “It would not be cheap… but through a number of investors, there is money available to put together a deal.”
Given the limited success of importing washed up 30-somethings to play in oil rich Middle Eastern leagues, the phrase “If the mountain won’t come to Muhammad, Muhammad must go to the mountain” springs to mind now that Dr al-Fahim has revealed he has been weighing up moves for a number of other clubs. Things are going to get very messy though if the Premier League starts having people who effectively own a stake in a number of clubs. Very messy.
