The club believed to be the richest football club in the world today announced plans to purchase the UK. A bid of GBP12.50 is thought to have been tabled to the Queen, the current owner. However it is believed that she is holding out for GBP15 and a steak meal at a Beefeater restaurant.
A major sticking point could be Wales, who's ownership is in question. Shop chain Londis claim to the sole owners of the principality. The Queen however denies the allegation stating "I never shop in Londis so I couldn't have sold Wales to them, Happy Shopper now that's a different story"
