If this comes to pass, I am very happy for Salford and happy that the Manchester metropolis still has a top tier RL team. This news, together with new investors at Bradford, Halifax,Featherstone and Hull KR seems to be heralding a new round of investors interested in the game.
Surely none of us can be too upset at these developments.
Up to a point, yes. But what I'd much rather see is a clear vision of the future of Super League as mapped out by the RFL with a view to targeting this and other cash towards a more prosperous and sustainable end. At present it's too much of a sack race with no-one really knowing where they stand long-term and desperate clubs chasing after bad money to try to keep up.
Good luck to Salford and I hope this guy comes through. Of all the established clubs they're much the most "investable" I would have thought, with the possible exception of London.
