Lakshmi Mittal to table buyout bid for Q

London, May 22: Indian billionaire Lakshmi Mittal will table a buyout bid for QPR tomorrow that could spark a multi-million pound war with Manchester City for the Premier League title.

Steel tycoon Mittal, who has a fortune of more than 17 billion pounds, is prepared to put his money for football’s richest prize.

Mittal’s son-in-law Amit Bhatia, who also has a stake in the Premier League new boys, warned that his father-in-law will spend “what it takes” to see his club crowned champions.

Mittal, who wants to buy out F1 tycoons Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone, has already promised manager Neil Warnock a preliminary 50 million pounds to buy new playeras.

The tycoon has been waiting in the wings since he acquired a 20 per cent stake, the Daily Express reports. (ANI)
