Russian billionaire plans ?00M Man Utd takeover

Russian billionaire plans ?00M Man Utd takeover
tribalfootball.com - December 30, 2003

Russian billionaire Ralif Safin is being linked with a takeover of Manchester United.
Safin, 49, is the co-founder of Russia's biggest oil company Lukoil and a prominent politician. He also is one of Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich's biggest rivals.

The City has being buzzing with talk about a Russian investor stalking United - now valued at almost ?00 million.

Henk Potts, a top City analyst at Barclays, told The Sun: "Given how far United shares have moved this year - and considering the big players have strengthened their positions - Mr Safin would have to pay an absolute fortune to takeover the club."




My heart = INTER...No Matter Win or Lose...


Zanetti : I still remember my first day at Inter. I arrived with a plastic bag with my boots inside and I crossed the crowd of fans who were asking who I was. That's where it all started.....

too bad! The most part of Russians hate Abramovich cuz he bought one english team and not one Russian....so if this Ralif Safin will buy Manchester United will be hated in Russia too!



i can't understand that...they had to buy one russian team! And they have to make great russian football!

Well of course they can hate him. Abramovich at first wanted to buy "Torpedo". This club was really bad at this time, Abramovich offered some money which was enough, but Torepdo owner asked 60 billions from him, do you think it`s normal for such club? So i understand Abramovich, he added some 10 or 20 billions and bought normal - Europe class club with infrastructure and stadium, lot of fans and popularity - what`s wrong in it?

One strong russian team consisting of non-russian players? I doubt that russian clubs can be strong if there`s playing only russians. So there`s no point of that. Each millionaire puts his money where`s better for him, and Chealsea or ManUnt. is definitely good and well choice
