A shocking revelation has been unearthed about the real reason that the Abu Dhabi United group bought Man City.
An insider said that satellite imagery had revealed that the Eastlands Stadium is directly over the biggest oil field in the western world.
The Arabian group were said to be laughing their socks off at pinching such a lucrative site from under the noses of UK oil companies.
A spokesperson said "All the players will still have jobs as footballers make suprisingly good oil rig workers."
When questioned about the £32 million spent on Robinho he said "It is a little known fact that Robihno is the worlds best oil man since JR Ewing and the group would have paid twice as much to get him. His expertise in extracting crude oil is second to none."
BP and Shell UK refused to comment.
