Glazer family and EB may get into an investment tie up. Talks have gone past initial stages.
Premier League giants Manchester United could well end up taking ownership of East Bengal, one of the oldest football clubs in the country. The development was confirmed by BCCI President and former India captain Sourav Ganguly in an interaction with the media on Tuesday. According to Ganguly, negotiations are on with the ‘Red Devils’ and a few others and a clear picture will emerge in a couple of weeks.
“Yes we have spoken to them and others also. It will take 10-12 more days to know who will be the entity,” Ganguly was quoted as saying by PTI.
When asked if United would assume the role of an investor, Ganguly said: “No-no (they are coming) as an owner.”
“It takes some time. First, let it reach a stage then we will make a comment. I will speak only after there’s a concrete development,” he added.
