£500m Bramley Moore-Dock update, as Farhad Moshiri puts Everton up for sale - report
Farhad Moshiri has put Everton up for sale, however, the Iranian-born businessman is looking for over £500million, according to The Guardian.
The Guardian suggest (24 January) Moshiri has finally put the club up for sale after seeking outside investment in recent months.
It’s believed the 67-year-old would like to recoup the money he has invested into the Bramley-Moore Dock stadium and that a sum of over half a billion is what he is after.
He’s got to go now
We’ve heard stories of Moshiri looking for outside investment before – and the time is certainly right for Moshiri to leave Goodison Park.
The Telegraph reported (16 January) that potential investor Maciek Kaminski has stepped back from negotiations with the Everton owner. The issue at the moment is that the Toffees are an extremely unattractive proposition for any potential buyer. If the Toffees were an established Premier League club, the scenario would be very different.
Their Premier League fate is hanging by thread and the new stadium adds another hurdle for any potential buyer to overcome. All Evertonians want is a fresh approach from the top down. There has been progress under Kevin Thelwell since his arrival at Goodison Park, but ultimately a complete refresh is needed and that starts with Moshiri.
He clearly doesn’t have any idea of how to run a Premier League club and unless there’s a dramatic change, he will be in charge of a Championship club in the 2023/24 campaign.
The next week and the conclusion of the transfer window could be crucial in the club’s long-term future.
