Arsenal have moved quickly to dismiss the earlier story about a possible takeover.
According to the Director of Communications, Mark Gonnella, “We have had no contact from a supposed consortium. More importantly Stan has no intention of selling.
“He is here for long-term. Has never sold investments in sporting organisations.”
So there you go. Whether that stops talk of investors, takeovers, shareholders, buy-outs or anything else remains to be seen.
There’s also the whole ‘Well, he would say that’ element to it, but given the nature and timing of the Telegraph story, we reckon it can be taken at face value.
