Fantastic News! Russian Billionaire Eyes West Ham
He is the 93rd richest man in the World, apparently, and he is ready to buy a 35% stake in the club - well that's according to The News of the World. The only problem with the story is that there has been no contact between Len Blavatik and the Davids thus far. So have TNOTW simply pulled the name of a rich Russian out of a hat and launched an "exclusive"?
The guy does have a home in London, in Kensington Palace Gardens no less. However, he is highly educated and would seem an unlikely fit with Sullivan and Gold. True his money has been made through a business called Access Industries, but I don't think that the access referred to had anything to do with vaginas! And there is no track record of investing in sports teams either - despite building his fortune in the USA.
It would be fantastic if it were true but I'm afraid the story is fantastic, as in the true meaning of the word - conceived or appearing as if conceived by an unrestrained imagination!
