Wang Jianlin, chair of China's largest property company,and China's richest man, is considering buying a football club in this country or Italy.  He considers GB the best place in the world to invest. He wants to make other investments.

In a BBC News article today (Fri), he is reported as saying that he has been approached by several English football clubs.  He said that he is looking for value. Nothing sorted yet.

Well, investing in GTFC would be "low-cost" and the potential "value" from the asset/stock rising should be very attractive.  Certainly compared to many other clubs. We have a long, interesting  history and traditions that reflect British values.  

Is it worth John making an approach?  We have nothing to lose. Maybe recent programmes about Grimsby might appeal as "special character, or a unique selling point"?  We can wish.

Leeds Utd are the best value club, huge potential a well run club would be in the top 4.

If not Villa might not be a bad bet.

Otherwise he'll probably want a London club

Not a chance, not a big enough area. I'm all up for lying though and saying we have a potential local fanbase of 70 million.
