What's the ruling regarding transfers between such clubs. I assume that players cannot be transferred between the two "on the cheap". Who would step in if it's outside "fair play" rules?  How would/could a fair fee be determined?
The whole scenario points to a way that football is heading and not one that I'm keen on. Football has been more and more commercially focused over time but this kind of thing coupled with his West Bromwich eco town and signing players to Curry favour with the Chinese government etc.... if this is where we are at today-where will it be in 10 years??

It'll either end up unrecognisable to the football we grew up on-or implode-and I kind of hope the whole football bubble bursts so we can return to what it was-a game of football.

Commercial interests were his first love and will remain so, he seems to be positioning himself to play a prime part in the
development of football commerce within China, so having stakes in two or more European clubs will only help that
objective.

Hopefully along the way he will develop a love for the Albion and look after the clubs interests long term, because changes
are going to come along perhaps quicker than most of us can imagine once the game goes even more global with China
and even at last, the USA realising the popularity and commercial potential.
Don't think Werder are interested in selling to him at the moment so it's likely if they ever did he'd have put all the effort in to Albion. Also currently The Prem is the big one.

On the note about over commercialisation...what isn't going through this type of thing?

Keep in mind the 51% member's ownership rule in Germany.  Investors don't get the same commercial freedom as they do in England.

This is why the owners of the dogheads pulled out of a deal to invest in Bremen last year.

What next?  The commercialisation of sex robots? God forbid . . .

Given the riches in the Prem Albion would be the more wealthy of the 2.
