Alisher Usmanov ‘ready to invest in Everton FC’

Alisher Usmanov has again reaffirmed his interest to invest in Everton with a potential equity stake or the naming rights to the club’s new stadium

Speaking last year, Usmanov said he would consider investing in Everton: “We are friends with Farhad Moshiri. If he needs the support, I am happy to help. Should there be a proposal or a possibility to invest in them with good potential returns, I would consider the deal”.

Speaking recently to the Financial Times, in an article published today, when asked whether he would like to join Farhad Moshiri at Everton, Usmanov said: “Yes. With great pleasure, if he asks. I am thinking about my investment in this club . . . I cannot reject Arsenal. I will not leave them as a fan. But if I join Everton, then I will wear an Everton shirt, because I am a professional.

“They are going to build a new stadium. Why not the USM Arena? It is not obligatory for me to participate myself. I could just sponsor them.”

The article also states a week after the interview, Usmanov brokered the deal to bring Carlo Ancelotti to Everton.
