Fulham On Verge Of Being Sold To American Investors, Says Report
Fulham owner Mohamed Al Fayed is on the verge of selling his Craven Cottage club to American investors, according to a report tonight in The Daily Mail newspaper.
Al Fayed is reportedly not interested in investing any more money in the club. He bought Fulham in 1997 £6.25million, and has invested approximately £200million in the club since then.
The Egyptian owner is reported to have held secret talks with his advisors. A deal could be finalized before the Premier League season kicks off on August 17, or even as soon as the end of this week.
No American investors have been named in the article, but it’s conjecture is that it could be another NFL owner who may want to buy a Premier League club.
