MSP Sports Capital have raised £130million ($165million) for MSP EFC Investors with Everton now edging closer to securing investment from the States.
The Esk shared a link to a US Government website on Friday morning (23 June) which shows the ball is now well and truly rolling for Farhad Moshiri to secure major investment from the other side of the Atlantic.
Moshiri lost funding from business partner Alisher Usmanov last year due to the UK’s sanctioning of Russian oligarchs after the invasion of Ukraine.
The Esk added in another tweet that this investment into MSP EFC Investors means that the funds are in place and an announcement is likely to be imminent.
Once that happens, Everton can finally get a jog on this summer.
It’s been a frustratingly quiet summer so far and while there are still over two months before the transfer window closes, it’s best to get the bulk of business done early.
Due to the lack of funds presumably available right now for Sean Dyche, it’s going to be a slog of a transfer window with some deals being done last minute to try and strike better deals.
MSP’s investment in Everton is obviously good news.
Moshiri now has help to pay for the construction of the new stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock and, hopefully, this opens the door for a full takeover in the future where the dud of an owner leaves Merseyside for good.
Now, Evertonians want to see the playing squad improved.
It’ll be easier said than done and it’s a bit of a headscratcher as to why deals haven’t started because this MSP deal wasn’t that vital to recruitment, surely.
