Sami Mokbel/Daily Mail - Warnock set to inherit transfer war chest with takeover looming
- Air Tycoon Tony Fernandes is preparing to hand Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock a transfer fund of £10million as he looks to finalise his takeover plans.
Sportsmail exclusively revealed how the Malaysian-businessman held talks with QPR co-owner Bernie Ecclestone and his business partner Flavio Briatore over purchasing a majority stake in the Barclays Premier League new-boys.
- And Fernandes’ interest in the Loftus Road club was evident when the millionaire businessman joined Briatore on a whistlestop visit to Bergamo, Italy, to watch the West London club win the three-team Bortolotti Trofeo tournament, which also included Atalanta and Braga.
- The 47-year-old, who is also team-principle for Formula One outfit Team Lotus, flew to Italy from Budapest after Saturday’s qualifying session for the Hungary Grand Prix, before returning on Sunday morning for the race itself.
And Sportsmail has learned discussions over Fernandes’ proposed buy-out are at a ‘highly advanced’ stage and he is hopeful of being on board by the start of the new season.
- Fernandes and Warnock met briefly after the tournament as the QPR boss looked to strike a relationship he hopes will bring the job stability he craves after months of speculation over his role.
- And West Ham supporter Fernandes is ready to back Warnock in a show of support for the experienced manager.
- Warnock told Sportsmail: ‘Myself, Flavio [Briatore] and Tony all had a positive chat after the match on Saturday.
- ‘We’ve already spoken about possible targets and he is a very positive chap.’
Warnock has been restricted to free transfers this summer, with Jay Bothroyd, Daniel Gabbidon and Kieron Dyer all arriving for nothing.
- The Loftus Road chief will continue that trend this week by completing free transfer moves for former Ipswich goalkeeper Brian Murphy and ex-Portsmouth striker Danny Webber.
- But Fernandes’ investment will give Warnock the chance to spend some money for the first time this summer.
- Having missed out on Kyle Naughton to Norwich, a new right-back remain one of Warnock’s top priorities with Manchester City defender Nedum Onuoha high on his hitlist.
- Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas is liked by Warnock, as is Jimmy Bullard - whose future at Hull is shrouded in doubt after he was suspended by the Tigers last week.
Warnock hopes to complete his first cash deal today when he holds talks with striker - DJ Campbell after QPR met Blackpool’s £1.25million release clause for the striker. Daily Mail

Flashback Five Years: Gianni Paladini's QPR Official Statement re Training Ground and "Campaign Against QPR" Five Year Flashback: Chairman Paladini Denies and Denounces

"...It is frustrating that, despite all the hard work everyone has been doing during pre-season, a tiny minority of people seem intent on damaging team morale and destroying the Club in the run up to our important first game..."
"...The latest is the absurd rumour suggested on a message board that the players were locked out of the Harlington training ground, when in fact Gary Waddock had just given them the day off as they had only recently arrived back from a busy schedule in Italy...."
"...The Club is in a better financial position than it has been in for a number of years. Things are still tough, but we have reduced the annual debt by millions and intend to reduce it further. Yet ridiculous rumours still seem to be invented by a few people for reasons beyond me...
"QPR fans will ask themselves why should people invent such rumours? The purpose can only be to destabilise the Club and to injure the morale of players and fans just days before the season kicks off. The Club will not allow another season to be derailed by these people....We will not allow a tiny group of people, driven by an agenda that has nothing to do with football, to destroy this Club...."
"For the last time I say to those who's criticism of the Board has developed into an agenda to undermine the Club, if you know of a better alternative to take QPR forward with the necessary funding to support it, then please let us know. Otherwise stop pursuing a divisive and destructive agenda. The Board, the players and staff and the thousands of fans of QPR will not allow a small selfish group to ruin the season for the rest of us...." QPR Statement
