Eagles’ E added value
NEWS that Tom and Jake Trbojevic have signed longterm agreements at Manly has s kickstarted rumours the Sea Eagles will soon be up for sale. .
The club is a far more v valuable asset with the brothers rs locked in until 2026. Adding to o the speculation, new independent commission chairman Peter V’landys has vowed to start a suburban ground funding campaign — and Brookvale Oval is at the top of his list.
This would be hugely appealing to potential b buyers because the oval is a dump no longer suitable to stage NRL games.
The Penn family is losing about $2 million on the franchise and would be prepared to sell if the right buyer came along.
There is talk a consortium of international businessmen and one of Australia’s wealthiest jewellers is poised to make an offer.
