Rapper/music mogul P. Diddy looks set to launch a bid to buy Crystal Palace Football Club(or is that CRISTAL palace?). The rapper is reportedly lining up a £360 million bid for the club, which is in administration, after his spokesperson confirmed he was in the market for the team. He has reportedly met fixers in the UK already and briefly considered buying Portsmouth FC.
“He could cover their debt and bankroll a return to the Premier League. He liked the name as well.”
English football is big business and I’m surprised it’s taken the loaded rappers so long to get involved.
I only live round the corner from Palace and I’d be happy to show Diddy the best pubs in Forest Hill and East Dulwich.
He’d be welcome to a can of Irn-Bru at Smart Towers too.
There’s some Selhurst Park history that I can fill him in on.
It was the scene of ERIC CANTONA’s kung-fu kick on a fan. DAVID BECKHAM scored his stunning goal from the halfway line for Man Utd when Wimbledon were sharing the ground with Palace.
