Red Bull at Charlton

The director of sports at RB Leipzig was at a recent Charlton game. Red Bull are said to be in the market for an English club (they also own one in Austria and one in New York), although he also attended games at Brentford and Chelsea. Apparently, the main purpose of his visit to The Valley was to watch Ademola Lookman: Red Bull

Red Bull managed to get round Bundesliga rules to name their club RB Leipzig and in the unlikely event of their acquiring Charlton, the club would probably then become Charlton RB. In line with their other clubs, The Valley would become the Red Bull Arena. Our sister football economy site looks at how they took over a failing club in Germany, relocated it and renamed it: Getting round the rules

  1. So is a Roland sale to Red Bull better than staying with Roland, if we had no other choice!
