And it’s a cheeky bid.
It’s not even a bid for what those shares are worth.
But Usmanov is considering it.
Alisher Usmanov is considering selling his 30% to Silent Stan.
With 97%, Kroenke can force everyone else to sell to him and make Arsenal a private company and do whatever he wants.
What a disaster that would be!
WHAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THIS? I really don’t know
So far this year there’s been a lot going on (two secret takeover bids) that I couldn’t write about here.
Yesterday at Bayern Munich, coach Carlo Ancelotti was sacked after losing 3-0 at home to PSG.
Against Bayern last season, Wenger lost 5-1 and 5-1… and got a new contract!
So Arsenal Football Club is already a ghastly situation: the owner from hell has given the manager from hell a new two-year contract he didn’t deserve.
But now Usmanov wants to do at Everton what he dreamed of doing at Arsenal.
