Rich Arabs Might Not Be So Rich After All

Rich Arabs Might Not Be So Rich After All

Google language translator


The world's credit crunch has finally caught up with the Arab Nations, but will this effect Manchester City Football Club?

www.arabianbusiness.com is reporting a financial meltdown regarding the 50 richest Arabs with an estimated $25 billion being lost between them. And with City's owners coming from that neck of the woods, how will these mind blowing figures effect January's transfer window?

There are more questions than answers, however one of the most over riding questions must be, will ADUG slash Mark Hughes estimated £100 million transfer kitty?

oh please dont say the media will catch drift of this. You can see the headlines now.. "City Arabs Consider selling club after big losses" and so on. Stil all 50 richest people made a combined lost of £25 billion. I really dont think 25 billion will harm the ADUG that much to be honest. Slash Hughes's £100 million transfer fund? I doubt he'l spend that much anyway?

Should be an interesting few days (Aaron) when it comes to headline news. Oh and the £100m budget covers January and the summer transfers - I think.

If the top 50 richest people have lost 25 billion between them and ADUG is made up of 10 or so of these people, i dont think 5 billion is too big a dent in the 540 billion they are supposed to have.

I've heard the sheikh is getting MCFC tattooed on his cheek and he's already got his nipples pierced with little MCFC tassles. Can anyone confirm this?
