League One Side Wycombe Wanderers In Takeover Bid From Henrik Larsson, Dennis Bergkamp And Dirk Kuyt
In one of the more bizarre stories of the week, former players Henrik Larsson, Dennis Bergkamp and Dirk Kuyt are hoping to complete a sensational takeover of League One side Wycombe Wanderers.
The trio have already made a bid for The Chairboys, according to The Athletic, who claim former Barcelona manager Ronald Koeman is being used in an advisory role.
Another unnamed high-profile former Dutch footballer is also reportedly involved.
To be clear, Ronald Koeman is with the group in an advisory role and would not be an investor at this point in time

The retired group have already been in contact with Wycombe's chairman Trevor Stroud with an aim to "catapult the club into stardom."
"All of the discussions we had before we went down the route with Rob are covered by NDAs (non-disclosure agreements)." Stroud told The Athletic.

"I've been asked a few times, people have picked up rumours, but all I can say is, yes, we talked to a number of parties. That's the position I have to hold.
"We think we've got the right person and we're looking forward to the vote starting next Tuesday."
In addition to the takeover bid, Bergkamp, Larsson and Kuyt are prepared to wipe out the club's debts while covering commercial revenue and operating costs at the club.
But it appears the League One side, managed by Gareth Ainsworth, are in advanced talks with American businessman Rob Couhig about a proposed takeover.
