Fulham - Possibly for Sale?
Despite the 'credit crunch` biting deep into our economy, the world off football continues to; strangely, operate outside of the financial restrictions placed on the rest of society.
Salaries and transfer fees continue to amaze and the announcement, during the week, that Sky Sports have won five of the six live packages thereby injecting a massive £1.78 billion into the game puts it on a financial footing few industries can match.
But, the promise of such cash has, if you believe the journalists, kick started the possibility that several Premier League clubs could be changing hands in the not too distant future.
Today, in the News of the World, there`s a two page spread that covers the Premier League clubs and gives a brief paragraph debating whether a club is up for sale or not or possibly might be.
Interestingly, for Fulham, they`re quoting that a figure in the region of £100 million could tempt Mr Al Fayed to part with his football club, stating that a sale may take place because, despite his obvious wealth, Mr Al Fayed has accepted he can`t match the big-spenders of the Premier League.
Could there be uncertain, challenging or even changing times ahead?
Any comments would be welcomed!
