Aston Villa, Wolves and West Bromwich Albion have all been taken over by Chinese owners in recent months with encouragement from President Xi and his ten year project to make China a world soccer power.
Hull City are the latest club that look as if they are going to have Chinese owners: Chinese takeover. Like Charlton, Hull City has unpopular owners who have a bad relationship with the fans and have been the target of continuous demonstrations. At least Roland has not tried to change Charlton's name - yet.
It is interesting that in the article linked to above Professor Simon Chadwick argues that Chinese owners try to be consensual and build bridges with fans. Roland shows no signs of selling, but if he did, the most likely purchasers would be Chinese.
