Serie A giants Legoland FC are now in serious debt after a rake of new signings this week. Taking advantage of the LFA’s decision to leave the transfer window open until the remainder of the season, LFC confirmed the signings of Franck Ribéry, Gonzalo Higuaín, Víctor Valdés, Patrice Evra, Urby Emanuelson and Zúñiga for a combined outlay of £124m.
Despite clearly not true, LFC’s new public relations director, Samuel Bardelt, told the media that the team’s finances were not a cause for concern. “Least minifigures fret, they should note that Legoland FC are 90 minutes away from securing the richest payday on offer in minifig football. These new signings will only strengthen our chances of lifting the Minifig Gold Cup and straight away this debt would be halved”.
Bardelt claimed that the debt was temporary and would be funded by a short term loan from the Bank of Legoland. We are in talks with the bank and all the paperwork should be completed by the end of the week as per league rules. We aren’t getting preferential treatment which some rumours have indicated. The loan will not add significantly to the debt as we do not intend on exceeding the 12 month low-interest period.”
Meanwhile, the contract of manager Raymond Domenech is expected to be terminated should the team fail to win the Minifig Gold Cup final next month. The team look set to miss out on a qualification place in next season’s tournament through the Serie A as they lie in 6th place with just 3 games to go.
