Dubai Sheikh’s Deal to Buy Spanish Team Getafe May Expire

The owner of Spanish soccer team Getafe said he will cancel the sale of the club to Royal Emirates Group unless the bidder meets a payment deadline next month.

Angel Torres said in an interview today that he is no longer in contact with representatives of the group led by chairman Sheikh Butti Bin Suhail Al Maktoum of Dubai. A call and e-mail to Royal Emirates Group managing director, Kaiser Rafiq, wasn’t immediately returned.
