Sources inside Anfield revealed exclusively to FootballFanCast.com, that the club’s financial department have been asked to process an accrual of £41.7m in July on a single acquisition to be spread over the next five years. The lead contact for this transaction is listed as Rolf Riemhofer, Bayern Munich’s financial director which suggests that a fee for Ribery’s transfer has already been agreed between the two clubs.
Despite the club’s bleak financial position, more good news could be on the way for the Reds with this transfer expected to herald either a change of ownership or considerable investment into the club, expected to come from co-owner George Gillett’s sale of his ice hockey franchise the Montreal Canadiens.
In addition to this, the club’s financial department have had requests for information pertaining to due diligence from Middle Eastern investors which have been approved by the board of directors.
So what sort of liquid sauce was behind this one? Is Ribery really set for Anfield and the Premier League club set for new ownership? Should this rumour Fly or Die?
