Everton set for takeover interest?

    Everton are being linked with an audacious takeover by soft drinks firm Red Bull according to the Mirror

    Redbull currently own 2 franchises already in New York and Salzburg and are looking to make a move on the English market.

    According to Alan Nixon, (who wrote the report) an “insider” said,  “Red Bull want a team to take into the Champions League. It is the only market they have not reached yet. Ideally this would be in the London area, but both Everton and Liverpool interest them too because it would not take much to get them to that level.

    “They have looked at the Championship, but you can spend fortunes there and not make any progress.”

    The moves are apparently being fronted by Ralf Rangnick, who was linked with the Everton managers job in the summer.

    It is thought any move for Everton could prove difficult as they would look to change the name and there would be problems over the word Red if it was to be associated with Everton.

    1. So from the Chinese to Ukrainian interests we now have the Austrian Red Bull giants interested in owning our club! Bill Kenwright seems keen on the deal while others are guessing the Hammers will be the lucky ones as they are already in London, have a new stadium and cost a hell of a lot less than what we would! But Red Bull know that getting a club like West Ham into the CL would cost a shed load of money and even then, nothing’s guaranteed! Everton however would require a fraction of the cost seeing how we’ve been 4th spot’s next door neighbours for the past 10 years! And I dare say CL trumps London stadium every time! No doubt the Austrians have also cottoned on to the new sky telly income of around £65m pa(extra)for even the lowest ranking of teams in the EPL! Enough to build a brand spanking new Red Bull Light Stadium with wings each side of the shield and 2x little white bulls on the inside of the crest! Would I be ok with that? So long as the club keeps it’s name and colour and geography, I don’t see why not! It’d be sad to see the Chang Elephants getting traded for the two bulls though!
