Everton owner Farhad Moshiri is looking to sell the club. 90 minutes understand.
Toffees are in the midst of crises on and off the field. They sacked manager Frank Lampard on Monday after he dropped to 19th in the Premier League table – the club’s confirmation came several hours after the media reported it – while the anger of fans in the boardroom was at an all-time high. Members of the Everton hierarchy will no longer attend games at Goodison Park due to safety concerns.
They are also set to suffer defeat by Tottenham’s loan signing Arnaut Danjuma despite there being almost everything to confirm his arrival on Tuesday.
90 minutes He now realizes that Moshiri is ready to move on from the Toffees and has put the asking price at £750m.
Moshiri initially bought a 49.9% stake in Everton in 2016, before raising it to 94% in 2022. He was initially looking to bring in outside investment but is now open for a complete sale.
His reign was marred by reckless spending in the transfer market, with Everton constantly criticized for overspending on fees and wages.
Financial fair play constraints have forced the club to act more frugally in the market over the past two years, leading to a series of sub-par signings and successive battles against relegation.
Everton are also building a new stadium on the site of Bramley-Moore Dock, which is expected to cost around £500m. They plan to leave Goodison Park at the end of the 2023/24 season.
