Could This Italian Kit Maker Be Somehow Linked To The West Ham Takeover Bid?

The popular Knees Up Mother Brown website reported an article from Italy suggesting that Cagliari President, Massimo Cellino has won the race in the West Ham ownership.

While Ken Dyer in the London Evening Standard still maintains that the West Ham takeover is a four-way fight but with the Italian in the driving seat due to his higher bid.

But, when I found this bit of news (bear with me, this was announced in September 2009), I just felt that the Italian connection was just too hard to ignore.

From My Football Kits website:
The current West Ham football shirts are manufactured by Umbro but as of the 2010-11 season this deal will finish and the new shirt manufacturers will be Italian firm Macron.
Macron currently manufacture Napoli and Braga football shirts as well as a lot of smaller clubs but it is believed they were offering the best deal for the club, the money generated by the new manufacture has been promised as investment for new players by the the West Ham CEO.

West Ham have also continued their sponsorship deal with SBOBET which will run until 2013.
Macron-Cellino? Just pure coincidence?

I think I much prefer Tony Fernandes as the new boss at West Ham. Something about seeing the Air Asia logo on the claret and blue shirt really start my blood racing and heighten my affinity with the club.

Eagerly awaiting the conclusion of the takeover talks over this weekend.
ESPN Soccernet has learned that the long-awaited Hammers takeover is in its final stages, and could be concluded before the weekend to provide an injection of much needed transfer cash for Zola, with the new owners likely to be in place, ready for action on Monday morning.
"The feeling is that Tony Fernandes really does mean business and West Ham can end up with more capital if they go with him."
 More to come I am sure...
