Kroenke’s London Football Rumour
London is buzzing about Stan Kroenke, the owner of the St. Louis Rams.
The upper-class Sunday Telegraph newspaper is saying Middle Eastern billionaires want to buy Kroenke’s English professional soccer team.
The paper is reporting a consortium from Qatar and the United Arab Emirates is offering two-and-a-quarter billion dollars in cash for the Arsenal Football Club.
Kroenke owns most of the team.
A spokesman for the team says Kroenke is committed to Arsenal for the long term and has had no contact with potential investors.
Kroenke’s St. Louis Rams are apparently not a part of the plan.
