GazProm?

Quote:
Il colosso petrolifero russo GazProm aveva gi intenzione nel 2004 di appoggiare economicamente la causa granata, ma pare che ora, nel 2007, la collaborazione si spossa effettivamente concretizzare grazie alla partecipazione come main sponsor del Toro per la prossima stagione.
It could be my bad Italian and a bit of optimism, but it seems GazProm will sponsor Toro next season? (This is a few weeks old, something could have changed.

They have given Schalke in Germany a 125million sponsorship deal over 5 years, have pumped money into CSKA Moscow (reigning Russian champions and 2005 UEFA Cup winners) and now Zenit Peterburg in Russia, and have some sort of deal going on with Sunderland in England. Could this be some cash to play around with? Or am I reading too much into this?

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

Who knows, GazProm just bought Abramovich's company (Sibneft).

More seriously though, I highly doubt the scale of investment would be as big as Chelsea's, though it would be a nice cash boost.

Russian oil company Nafta were supposedly interested in a takeover of AS Roma a few years back but allegedly Berlusconi had Putin intervene so that it never materialized.

This wouldn't rule out a sponsorship deal, obviously.

Yeah, I think it would just be a sponsorship deal and not a takeover. Cairo will stay for a while, as long as he gets some advice on footballing matters from someone with actual Serie A experience. And frankly, I like the idea of a Toro fan owning the club rather than some big Russian oil conglomeration, even if we don't get oodles of monehy.
