Massive News.
Alisher Usmanov has made a 1.3$ billion bid to buy out Stan Kroenke's 67% of Arsenal.

Agree0 Disagree0

Would be amazing.

19 May 2017 18:58:18
He won't sell, he doesn't need to.

19 May 2017 19:02:51
DT and others are protesting against Kroenke Sunday.

19 May 2017 19:10:24
The club is valued at 1.4 bn, so a bid that is just under that for 67% could be accepted.

Rg61 way I see it stan brought at a great time got a stadium out of the gamble. Wenger got him many years of champions league. Top4 is harder than ever now and wil get harder. Stans vision won't get us in imo. If we don't get top4 sunday that's a lot of cash missing. He will take the cash and run I feel.

As I said on the rumour page, Usmanovs wealth has apparently increased by over 4 billion this year so he definitely has the money.

Other big factors maybe Kroenke moving his American Football franchise to a completely different state and his recent acquisition of that massive ranch.

It would be fantastic to get rid of that utter dope.

It's a battle between two billionaires and it will be like strutting peacocks trying to out rich each other.

19 May 2017 20:17:17
Let's just hope this is the beginning of negotiations. All we have to go on at the moment are the medias take on events and if to be believed that kronke didn't initially turn it down then he was thinking about it and if he's thinking about it maybe he is trying to bait an higher offer. It's not as if he needs the money but he is a business man and will not turn down the right offer but the right offer will be all about saving face and been able to come out of it looking like he's got the better deal.

19 May 2017 20:19:18
Wes you are right but remember it's just for stans shares percentage. Apparently silent stan has lived up to his name, bid made in april and he hasn't responded yet. Stan get out and take your cronies with you. Please.

19 May 2017 22:13:14
Usmanov not only is richer than kroenke, but also seems to know one or two things about football. He has done so many interviews talking about the direction of the club. Would you have a guy like that or one who doesn't care at all? They don't call him silent stan for no reason. He is on record saying he never bouht Arsenal to win trophies. That alone should have made fans protest. Interestig times ahead.

Possession is 9/ 10 of the negotiating price, make Stan an offer even he can't refuse, surely if he has 4 billion in his back pocket he wasn't expecting he can offord to do what it takes? If he's serious.

20 May 2017 09:23:14
Its like buying a house you like you want it have the cash but are not going to pay 350k for a house that others on the street going for 250k. No matter how much you love it. Hos offer may increase but even at thay offer stans profit is huge. And he can walk away always having champions league cash. We drop out now with stan no easy way back in. Drop out with usmanov in confident we get back in.

20 May 2017 11:06:24
If you won 20 million on the lottery would you pay the 350 grand it took to get the house you've always wanted and told the world you wanted Derby? Or would you stick to market value and take another house instead?
Seems a waste of time to have all that vast wealth if your going to compromise on your dreams for the sake of a few extra bob in the bank mate.

20 May 2017 14:34:02
No gunner I wouldn't just because i'm rich I wouldn't walk into range rover and go heres double get em a car or give star bucks £20 for a coffee. Which is around double lol. i'm sure usmanov buys shares at prices he seems fit. If not he'd lose out a lot of times no in the future.

20 May 2017 15:32:16
its the same argument when utd fans say it doesn't matter if they get ripped off for players because they have loads of money, it still seems stupid. but like you say, if its a one off house that you really like do you pay whatever it takes to get it? you probably still wouldn't want to go to much higher and feel ripped off?
