GOODISON NEWS 🔵 John Textor claim emerges as Everton takeover talks collapse

Bryan King claims he was unsure John Textor ever had the required funds to complete a takeover at Everton.

The ex-Goodison scout never considered the Crystal Palace shareholder to be a serious option.

It comes after a report in the Telegraph (10 June) shared that Textor has withdrawn his takeover bid after Farhad Moshiri declined to sign a terms sheet.

Dealmakers believe Textor had met Moshiri’s requirements but King – speaking exclusively to Goodison News – isn’t so sure.

“I think this is mainly due to the interest from other parties,” King said.

“The kind of money that was needed, I was never sure Textor had that money.

“If he was going to make a big strong move, he would have needed to have his Palace shares sold first.

“There must be something in the background which has stopped Moshiri from entertaining a deal with Textor.”

Farhad Moshiri has options to choose from in the Everton takeover race

At one point, Moshiri looked to be the Toffees’ knight in shining armour.

Fast forward a few weeks later and most supporters won’t be too fussed to see the American’s bid withdrawn.

Farhad Moshiri’s troubled time as Everton owner could soon be coming to an end.

There are plenty of options on the table for Moshiri, and that probably played a part in talks with Textor breaking down.

It looks as if there is a choice to be made at Goodison Park and supporters will hope for a positive one.
