Imagine if he took over at PSG next season, that would really make my heart sink.

In before United fans start calling Sir Alex part of the problem since PSG is the root of all evil according to many

Interesting but you'd think there are nicer places for them to meet than at the Lowry hotel. I guess it's easier for Fergie.

What is the speculation here, What are the rules in regards to owning another club in Europe?

Red Bull own 2 within Europe dont they?

It's possible this has nothing to do with Man Utd

There is a joint interest in horses

Something linked to Qatar WC is also possible

Can't play in the same competition I think. So CL only one would

Poch too, so I doubt it's anything remotely juicy. Probably just some horse and wine banter.

Who knows what powerful people get up to in their shadowy cabals.

Maybe Qatar is doing some leg work for the Sauds. Oil revenues have gone up a bit thanks to dollar printing, so maybe Newcastle feels a bit too cheap.

No. The Saudis and Qataris hate each other.

His shoes don't look a day over thirty.



Ah, but what might they have offered in return.

Some sort of coup with SAF as the figurehead to put the right people in all the right positions.
In return he gets to see City not make another CL final :cool:

Huh TIL. I was sure they used to be best buds.
They were. Even blood-related! A few things happened over the past couple of decades to change that. It’s a long story but a reconciliation has been under way for a couple of years. Not yet not at the point where they’d help each other buy football clubs though!
