    As Arsene Wenger stated “Once a country owns a club, everything is possible”.

    Oil money, whether from Russia or the Middle East, has seriously skewed world soccer. Say what you want about the new tv deals causing the recent inflation, at least they are more of an equalizer within a league. It’s the oil-backed teams which started this whole roller coaster.
