OK, hands up all those that have been intrigued by the goings on with the Arsenal shares. Unknown people buying them up and then a million pounds worth given (yes, free of charge apparently) from one director to another.
I don't know about anyone else but I find it hard to believe a businessman would just give away a million pounds, especially as the Arsenal share price is rising so rapidly. Maybe it is just me being cynical but I can't help feeling something is going on. It might just be a tax write-off, but my gut feeling is that Arsenal are about to be sold.
In fact my instinctive reaction is that DIC are looking for a club and what better club for a consortium based in Dubai than the one playing at the Emirates Stadium? The only one of the top four clubs available to buy with a brand new stadium in place, it is ripe for the picking and can only be a matter of time before it is bought.
