Teams are doing their best to do what is best for their roaster. Spending millions in the transfer window trying to find the missing piece. Management is doing its best to save pennies and make the best plans for negotiations, and then there is Todd Boehly’s Chelsea. Chelsea spent more than 600 million USD only this season.

Premier League soccer club on sale

According to reports from The Guardian, Farhad Moshiri, the Owner of Everton, has put the club on the market for minor or major ownership. According to the reports, he is asking for offers of more than 544 million$. The Moroccan Businessman is looking to bring some investment to recoup his investment in the new soccer stadium. This decision came a mere day after the team had sacked the coach Frank Lampard. The move came after the disappointing performance of the club as they have only won 3 out of 20 games they have played this season.

Farhad Moshiri appeared in a video posted on Everton’s website last week and talked about the future of the club. He said, “The club is not for sale but I’ve been talking to top investors, real quality, to bridge the gap on the stadium, I can do it myself and the reason I want to do it is to bring top sport investors into Everton for some of the reasons that the fans want improvement, more talent, and we are close to having a deal done.”

This is a shocking revelation. It is even more surprising that this is happening right when they are at the edge of relegation. If they manage to step up the game and somehow dodge relegation, which is going to be tough, then can expect a 600 million offer.

Potentially interested parties for the club

This is just speculation but, Qatar sports investors are eying to invest in the Premier League. They had previously shown interest in minority ownership in Tottenham, but that meeting didn’t produce promising results.

Another possible owner might be an American investor because this is the biggest trend in European soccer. Todd Boehly is the owner of Chelsea and 49ers Enterprises, and owns minor ownership of Leeds United—eying sole ownership of the club. It is possible that an American shocks the world if everything works out okay.
