Member of Qatari Royal family hints at Arsenal takeover with ‘time to sell’ social media activity
Arsenal have experienced an increase in takeover rumours over the course of the past year. Despite KSE owner Stan Kroenke’s seemingly unwavering position that the club is not for sale, he has faced offers.
Arsenal supporters will be left in bundles of excitement after it emerged that a member of the Qatari Royal Family has been tweeting about the Gunners
Initially, Daniel Ek, Spotify CEO, had a reported £1.8 billion offer rejected. Ek confirmed via social mediathat Josh Kroenke had informed them “they don’t need the money.”
Ek maintained he would “remain interested should the situation ever change.”
Khalifah Bin Hamad Al.Thani has posted two tweets in relation to Arsenal over the last 24 hours, one stating that it’s time for the current Kroenke ownership to ‘sell’.
That was followed up by another post just an hour later, with the cryptic caption of ‘the rest of the time…’ and ‘7 months’ in a tweet that shared a picture of the Arsenal badge.
Al Qabas have also reported the news, which seems to suggest that the royal family have identified the north London outfit as an option to invest in the Premier League
So far nothing from the Kroenke perspective has changed despite the continual decline and poor results of the club. However, a new potential buyer looked to of seemingly emerged.
Through some cryptic online tweets, the former President of Qatari club Al Arabi, Khalifah Bin Hamad Al Thani, appeared to address KSE writing on the 24 th August:
‘I think it’s time to sell
Who is Khalifah Bin Hamad Al Thani?
The Fan Brands team spoke with Ahmed Hashim, the editor at Qatar Football Live. Hashim explained some of the confusion around the identity of the Sheikh.
“Although he is from the Al Thani tribe, he’s not a member of the ruling branch. People get confused between him and the Amir’s brother, who also happens to be named Sheikh Khalifa bin Hamad,” said Hashim.
Ahmed Hashim concurred with Freeley, in particular about the style of the tweets he had been using.
“Considering everything, I don’t think he is serious about buying Arsenal or any club for that matter, because in these times, I don’t see an individual from the Middle East buy a club like that. State-owned funds are a different thing altogether,” said Hashim.
“In this particular case, he hasn’t even actually suggested that he is thinking about buying, but like most of his tweets over the past few weeks, it seems he’s just having fun on Twitter.
“It’s also clear he is not exactly fluent in English or Spanish and is using some translator or dictionary, and we all know things can get lost in translation. Sadly, for a lot of fans who are desperate to hear good news about their club or favourite player, they take it too seriously. I’d suggest they don’t.”
Interestingly, similarly to Daniel Ek’s proposed takeover, this is occurring very publicly. Whether this is simply an indication of a change in the way multi-billion takeovers are changing is far too early with too few examples to know.
However, it is interesting that where previously these types of discussions would have been conducted very privately and behind closed doors, they now appear to be happening across social media

There is still hope for Arsenal, the team is all yours Sheikh give us the oil money
