Takeover Talk: NUFC to get Hines` beans?

Takeover Talk: NUFC to get Hines` beans?

A double takeover speculation special today as Ashley`s reign prepares to wind down. First up is the realistic and probably expected bid from Freddie Shepherd for the club should we go down. That remains no secret after the former chairman refused to rule out talk.

Second on the list is the unknown source of American property tycoon Gerald Hines. A brief look at Wikipedia tells us:

Gerald D. Hines (born 1925) is the founder and chairman of Hines, a privately held real estate firm with its U.S. headquarters located in Houston, Texas, and its European headquarters located in London.

Today, the Hines portfolio of projects underway, completed, acquired and managed for third parties includes more than 1,000 properties representing approximately 416,000,000 square feet (38,600,000 m2) of office, residential, mixed-use, industrial, hotel, medical, retail and sports facilities, as well as large, master-planned communities and land developments. With controlled assets valued at approximately $19.9 billion, Hines is one of the largest real estate organizations in the world.

Quite possibly the most bizarre link yet.
