Paul Warburton/Ealing Gazette - Flavio Briatore stalls over QPR sale
- FORMER QPR chairman Flavio Briatore is ready to ditch the sale of his 70 percent stake in the Championship leaders – and reap the riches of a return to the Premiership instead.
- Gazette sport has learned the heavily-criticised Italian is only too aware he and the club stand to make north of £50 million by joining the elite next season.
- Unbeaten Rangers, six points clear at the top, have made Briatore stall on the sale, although the man who hired and fired nine managers in three years is angry talks between his agents and Kingfisher Beer mogul Vijay Millya have come to nothing.
- Millya, who ironically has Formula One interests like Briatore, is understood to have been offered a way into the club by vice-chair Amit Bhatia with a view to bringing £20millon in sponsorship.
- But negotiations have come to nothing – and Briatore along with pal Bernie Ecclestone, who also has a stake at Loftus Road, plan to laugh all the way to the bank.
- A source said: “It costs the club £1million-a-month to function – with Briatore and Ecclestone doing most of the funding. You can see how being in the Premiership would ease the expenditure.”
- A spokesperson for United Breweries, who market Kingfisher, was not available at time of going to press. Ealing Gazette
