Abu Dhabi look set to complete the takeover of Manchester City by the end of the week for a reported £210 million pounds.
On Transfer Deadline day, the news broke that Manchester City had signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Abu Dhabi. However it seems now that the next document that will be signed will be the completion of the takeover by the Middle East consortium.
The perspective new owners have wasted no time in signalling their intent, by signing Robinho, and have held talks with Manchester City Council, about the possible purchase of the City Of Manchester Stadium.
The Takeover is both beneficial to the club and Thaksin Shinawatra. Thaksin spent £81.6 million pounds in 2007, and is now set to make a profit, in which will only prove Thaksin is a shrewd business man.
It has been reported that the new owners, will spend around £300-500 million pounds to strengthen the squad, which would certainly improve what good quality we already have. I will not state that it will make us win trophies, because as everybody is keen to point out, money is not guaranteed to buy success. Also Abu Dhabi is in the process of completing a business plan to make "City" a global brand, imagine this scenario:
I step out of my City Car, Wearing My City fashion gear, where I walk inside City Eating, and take out my City Card, where I order a Double Bacon 'Binho with large Zabaleta`s and Bojinov Sauce. I then order City`s energy drink 24/7 before checking my City Phone, for the time.
The only thing I am certain of, is that the next few years will provide some very exciting times for Manchester City!
Further News on Thaksin Shinawatra:
Thaksin Shinawatra`s brother-in-law, has been nominated by Thailand`s government party the People`s Power Party to become the next prime minister. Looks like Thaksin is still going to be headline news in Thailand, whether he owns Manchester City or not.
