Derby County journalist Ryan Conway has been sharing his thoughts on potential new Rams owner Erik Alonso and whether or not his proposed takeover of the Midlands club would still go through if Derby get relegated at the end of this season.
This comes after Conway recently uploaded a video onto his YouTube channel where he spoke about a range of topics concerning Wayne Rooney’s side.
He said: “No, I don’t think he will because this club still has loads of potential. The stadium is fit for Premier League. The training ground is fit for the Premier League. They’ve got assets there in terms of you look at Rooney, I mean, whether you think he’s a good manager or a bad manager, I think we’ll find that out properly next season.
“Do I think Erik Alonso walks away? No, I still think as a businessperson, Derby County is a smart business investment at the right price.”
It was recently reported by The Telegraph that all the relevant paperwork has been signed, is legally binding and if the EFL approves the takeover, then Derby could potentially have their new owners in before the end of April.
TIF Thoughts on Ryan Conway’s comments on Alonso and the potential Derby takeover…
Given how Derby are currently in 21st place in the Championship table, four points clear of the relegation zone and having lost their three previous league games, it’s understandable why some fans may be concerned about the potential takeover being called off if they end up in League One next season.
Do you think the takeover will go through if Derby get relegated?
In our view, if Derby can end this season without getting relegated, this would give the club the best chance of seeing this takeover over the line.
