Sheffield United sold for £115m

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/61177119

American businessman Henry Mauriss has had a £115m bid to buy Sheffield United accepted by the Championship club.
Mauriss previously bid £350m to buy Newcastle United in 2020, before a Saudi Arabian-backed takeover went through the following year.

Sounds steep to me, considering they're likely to still be in the Championship next season

    Definitely a lot but they have what, 2 yrs of parachute money left at £30-40M pa and sit 6th this year after a good run.

    Plus their owner is some Saudi Prince anyway so I assume not a distressed sale?
  • That’s a very expensive greasy chip butty

    Would be tempted with a good bit of snuff 
  • Be interesting to see if this actually happens , same guy tried to buy Newcastle and never produced the proof of funds.

    £115m seems steep but you've got parachute payments and a ready to go Premier League standard stadium.
