When I bought Manchester United in 2005 Malcolm Glazer, an American billionaire, who owns an oil company that bought the Bush family, which then became a producer of oil and fish protein. In addition, controls a football franchise. Since his arrival in Manchester, has aroused the ire of fans: it has increased the price of tickets and has placed in leadership positions to their children, whom the fans have come to attack your computer to see that it becomes just another American franchise. The same happens in Liverpool bought by Americans Tom Hicks, who has supported campaigns for George W. Bush, and George Gillet. They have already agreed the forthcoming collapse of the legendary Anfield Road stadium to build a new one bearing the name of a trademark. The Premier League is Europe's most-watched league in the world and the most exploited the overseas market.

The team finishing in last place in the league table of the league receives about 40 million euros for the season, far more than they receive most Spanish teams. The winner pocketed 91 million, a figure only comparable to the 120 you will receive Real Madrid each season his contract with the Catalan production company Mediapro. Black money laundering or the use of equipment such as speculative tools can be other reasons to invest. In fact, Liverpool's owners are negotiating with a venture capital fund in Dubai selling the club, just a year after purchase. To the detriment of national teams, leagues more millions around the world care about their players, even when they are minors, a situation which has denounced the current president of UEFA, Michel Platini.
