Al Jazeera’s Investigative Unit (I-Unit) goes undercover to expose how English football clubs can be bought by criminals and become vehicles to launder the proceeds of their crimes. The investigation The Man Who Sell Football provides a startling insight into the murky world of football finance, ownership and governance in the wealthiest and most popular league in the world.
