Crystal Palace ‘In Takeover Talks’ With Dubai-Based Consortium: Nightly Soccer Report
Crystal Palace are in takeover talks with a Dubai-based consortium who are interested in purchasing a Premier League club, according to a report tonight in The Mirror newspaper.
The British tabloid doesn’t list any sources in the story, but says that they believe a senior club official has met with a Moroccan businessman who is the front man for the group.
The club is located in London, south of the Thames River, but their ground would need to be redeveloped to bring it to a level of other Premier League grounds, to generate more revenue for the potential new owners.
