Arsenal chairman denies takeover talk
Fri 8th Mar 2013 | Clubs Ownership
Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood has denied any knowledge of a potential £1.5 billion takeover of the club by a Middle East consortium.
American Stan Kroenke and Russian Alisher Usmanov are the major shareholders in the club and Hill-Wood does not expect either to be keen to sell their interest.
Hill-Wood said: "I have heard nothing and I don't think anybody knows anything about it at the club.
"It all seems a bit of a waste of time.
"If there is this consortium, they can't make any progress unless they attempt to get in touch. So I can't say if there is anything to it or not.
"But even if they did make an approach, my understanding is our two major shareholders do not want to sell."
