Mohamed Al Fayed has brought his colourful 16-year association with Fulham to an end after sanctioning the sale of the Premier League club to the United States-based billionaire Shahid Khan. The deal was formally announced on Friday night and Fayed will give a photo call at Craven Cottage on Saturday afternoon, with the deal, which has been sanctioned by the Premier League, understood to be worth up to £200m. That would effectively match the amount loaned to the London club by the Egyptian businessman since he bought them as a third-tier side in 1997. Khan is the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars American Football franchise, which he purchased in 2011, having made his estimated £1.7bn fortune in the manufacture of car parts. The 62-year-old, who will become the sixth American owner of a Premier League club, has been actively seeking to promote the Jaguars in the UK, with their potential relocation to London having even been mooted in the US.

BBC Sport - Premier League agrees new financial regulations
Clubs accused of breaking FFP rules to discover fate next month : F.C. Business Fri 5th Oct 2012 | Money & Finance The 23 clubs that have been accused of breaking UEFA’s Financial Fair Play (FFP) rules will discover their fate early next month. Last month, UEFA announced that Atletico Madrid, along with Spanish Primera Division counterpart Malaga, Portugal’s Sporting Lisbon and Turkey’s Fenerbahce were amongst 23 clubs competing in European competition which had been found to have “important overdue payables towards other clubs, and/or towards employees or social/tax authorities”. As a result, UEFA said its Club Financial Control Body’s investigatory chamber, chaired by former Belgian Prime Minister Jean-Luc Dehaene, had temporarily withheld the clubs’ prize money pending further investigation. The clubs have until October 15 to convince UEFA of their plans to pay a combined Eur30 million in unpaid players’ wages, transfer fees and taxes.

Or then, when you think about it, perhaps not. According to Scudamore, Platini's argument that Financial Fair Play regulations provide the light of impending football sanity would have been pummelled by first-hand evidence of the effects of Sheikh Mansour's £1bn-plus investment in champions-elect Manchester City. Apparently caught in a rush of corporate pride, he declared: "It would have been nice for Platini to have been there. It is a strong point to put to him: this is what you get when you welcome inward investment."

Dave King fears liquidation for Rangers Dave King fears liquidation for Rangers Wed 7th Mar 2012 | Football Club Administration Rangers director Dave King believes it is "inevitable" the club will plunge into liquidation after administrators were called in at Ibrox. South Africa-based King, the only survivor from the Sir David Murray era on the board, announced his intention to sue the former Rangers owner and criticised Craig Whyte after the SPL champions entered administration last month. In a 1500-word statement, King said: "I do not believe that there is a reasonable prospect that the company can come out of administration. I believe that liquidation is inevitable."
A young Portsmouth fan strikes a defiant note during a recent game at Fratton Park. Photograph: James Benwell/Action Images Portsmouth's administrator, Trevor Birch, evidently feels his gloomy message from shell-shocked Fratton Park has not been fully digested, so he decided to spell it out, alarmingly. Two years after their last existence-threatening crisis, Pompey, formed in 1898, really could go bust this time. In administration for the second time in two years following the arrest for alleged bank fraud of their most recent owner, the Russian Vladimir Antonov, Portsmouth do not have enough money to see them through until the end of the season.

Mon 17th Oct 2011 | UEFA Football Clubs hoping to compete in lucrative European competition should expect to navigate a labyrinth of caveats and exceptions to the governing body’s Financial Fair Play Regulations, an expert will explain today. The rules, which come into force from 2013 have been designed to ensure clubs do not spend more than they earn, with the prospect of fines or the withdrawal of licences for those who fail to comply. However, Dr Nicholas Braslavsky QC, barrister and head of Kings Chambers, will tell members at a meeting of the Kings Sport Network in Manchester today that a lack of clarity from UEFA on how strictly these sanctions will be imposed means clubs should peruse the rules carefully. “For the first time UEFA has tried to grasp the nettle where it believes expenditure is running massively out of control. Will UEFA bare its teeth over Financial Fair Play?

This article is the subject of a legal complaint made on behalf of Martin O'Neill. The Premier League's 20 clubs collectively lost close to half a billion pounds last year despite making record income, a Guardian analysis of their most recent accounts has revealed. In the 2009-10 financial year, the clubs currently in the Premier League made total revenues of £2.1bn, principally from their billion-pound TV deals and the world's most expensive tickets. Yet 16 of the 20 clubs made losses, totalling a record £484m, and the same number relied on funding from their wealthy owners. Since the owners took over their clubs, they have put in a staggering £2.3bn, by way of loans or for shares, mostly to pay ever-escalating players' wages and transfer fees. The Premier League's total wage bill in 2009-10 was £1.4bn, an average £70m per club, accounting for an average 68% of the clubs' income, once Arsenal's exceptional profit from selling flats in the old Highbury stadium is discounted.
