Looks like the Saudi's are about to take over Jez

The cash the owners have dwarfs anything else in football.

That's the name of the game at the top level.

Will be mildly interesting watching them buy their way to their first title before the fans start greeting about being soulless. Thing about this one is it looks like the first owners that literally have unlimited money.

The novelty of relatively diddy teams coming in to endless money and buying everyone and anyone wore off 10+ year ago when city were buying Robinho and that.

The Chelsea one was genuinely quite exciting as it came off the back of total dominance from Man U and Arsenal and it was a very exciting team that never felt like mercenaries.

The PSG one has been the rankest.

I actually remember being absolutely buzzing to see Chelsea when they'd bought a batch of top players tbf. That was exciting but I was at an age where I wasn't as cynical as I am now.

It's been almost done for about a year now. I'll believe it when I see it.

You'd imagine big Brucey will be sacked this week and they'll spend some cash in January to secure their league status.

They’ve still got to loosely abide by FFP, they can’t just spunk billions right away. 

They’ll be able to do more than Ashley did obviously but they’re hardly going to just drop £200m on a player.
