January 10 According to an exclusive report by Bloomberg reporter David Hellier, Qatar Sports Investment Company (Qatar
Sports Investments) is considering acquiring or investing in a small number of Premier League clubs such as Manchester United, Liverpool, and Tottenham. This plan is currently in its early stages.
According to informed knowledge, the chairman of Qatar Sports Investment Company Nasser recently talked with Tottenham chairman Levy about the possibility of a potential acquisition of shares.
The source, who did not want to be named, added that Qatar Sports Investment is also considering a full acquisition or a stake in Manchester United or Liverpool.
A spokesman for Qatar Sports Investments declined to comment and a Tottenham spokesman denied a meeting about a sale of the club’s stake.
A spokesman for Manchester United declined to comment and a spokesman for Liverpool did not respond to a request for comment.
Qatar Sports Investments is still considering the matter and a deal may not be reached.
After hosting what England considered a successful World Cup, Qatar Sports Investments decided to consider at least one investment in the Premier League.
Any potential deal, whether an outright takeover or a minority stake, would further solidify QSI’s strategy, partly to boost the country’s profile and invest in its vast wealth derived from natural resources.
It is unclear whether Qatar Sports Investments is in deal talks with other Premier League clubs, with any potential bids currently at an early stage, after CBS first reported their meeting with Spurs.
