There are essentially two possibilities to me. Either Moshiri's money goes substantially beyond what is reported (which as I've said plenty of times has lots of credibility and Forbes have acknowledged a lot of times) or that there are other investor(s) in the background.He was also desperate to be involved though, making public statements about it over and over again with particular mention to how he wanted to spend his money to invest in the team. Basically, everything he’s doing now.
I’m not saying you but anyone who thinks he’s just going to extinguish that passion and not be involved here now are deluded. He’s now got the platform he’s ultimately craved for a long time. A platform that even his money couldn’t buy at 1 point.
He’s going to milk this and our spending clearly indicates it’s Mr Usmanov’s money behind all this, not Mr Moshri’s. It’s just too big a percentage of Mr Moshri’s net worth, that we are seemingly throwing around without second thought, for it to be anything otherwise IMO.
I'd also add it may not be either/or, both can be true simultaneously.
Given the UK government stance on Russian money etc, it seems very obvious to me as to why a Russian multi-billionaire would want to conceal his interest in the club from public consumption at a point when a big building project is due to be signed off from said government.
