Sheik Mansour

Manchester City to turn Old Trafford into a casino

News has broken in the United Arab Emirates that Manchester City moneybags owner Sheikh Mansour is preparing an outrageous £2 billion bid for Manchester United’s Old Trafford traditional Stadium. Rumours that the ‘money no object’ Sheikh is prepared to pay this amount to the Glazer family have been filtering out of the Royal Palace for many weeks. If accepted, the deal would represent 140% profit on the £800m the Glazers paid for United in 2005.

Thank God the Glazers didn’t sell United

Can there be anything worse than Manchester United being owned by the Glazer family? Many will say that the Americans are as bad as it can possibly get but don’t you believe it. How about being owned by a military dictator? According to a secret document leaked by whistle blowing website WikiLeaks, the club may have come close to being taken over by the leader of Burma’s military junta Nargis Than Shwe, commander in chief of the armed forces and a fan of United. According to a cable from the US embassy in Rangoon, he was urged to mount a £634million takeover bid by his grandson.
