Vega putting together takeover package?
Another Sunday and more 'rumours' surrounding Pompey, but potentially positive ones for a change - although I must stress that the reports of a possible takeover being put together by Ramon Vega are reported in The People and are written by our 'mate' Alan Nixon, of infinite 'exclusives to materialise' fame...
Anyway, the suggestion is the former Swiss international - who had spells in Britain playing for Spurs, most famously, and Celtic, most successfully - is putting together a 'multi-million-pound' takeover consortium to buy Pompey from Sacha Gaydamak, who of course as we know is very keen to sell up.
Vega has moved into investment since his playing days ended, having interests in investment firms and building companies - potentially good news for Pompey considering the fronts we need/want to look at? He has his own firm, Duet Group, which he set-up some 7-years ago and is also said to have an interest in cap it alinvestment, a Swiss based management and private equity company.
It is 'said' that Vega has met with Gaydamak twice in recent times, with him being a VIP guest at Fratton when we lost to Villa and he is looking to find backers for his latest project with him now looking to move into football, well back into football, but on an investment level.
'If' backers can be found that believe that money could be made from investing in the club, which building a new training ground and what have you would bring, then the potential return is there.
Finding these backers willing to invest, and of course getting that concrete permission to build the much-touted new ground, could be problems that need overcoming before anything can happen...
As always 'lets wait and see what happens!'
PLAY UP POMPEY!
