With a salary cap the wealth isn't really that important we just know we can pay up to it comfortably.

Whether he would decide to spend on other things outside the squad like facilities etc is another story.

A new stadium won't happen when there are already 2 perfectly adequate ones in the borough.

I'd be very sad to see Lenagan sell - he's been brilliant for the club overall.

Fully agree. I really do hope he stays on as a director.

Definitely an uneasy feeling as IL is simply a club legend.

That being said, nothing lasts forever and he's not getting any younger (75yrs old).

I'd add two further things;

1- If this happens then Danson has BIG shoes to fill.

2 - IL deserves a statute outside the DW.

Wealth can be important when it comes to Marquee players, not that we will but we could pay Tedesco and Munster £5mil a year and stay well within the cap.

No salary cap restrictions on coach and backroom staff.

In an dream world IL would still run the club with this guy as a silent financial backer.

If its true and IL leaves, THANK YOU IL!

Perhaps IL is to stay at the club as Chief Executive or some similar title. As good an owner Danson could turn out to be in the interim IL's Rugby knowledge with regard to the club, SL, RFL & Intl Rugby League has to be greater than Danson's. It's hard to imagine IL is just walking away.

As has been mentioned, maybe Danson is to buy Wigan RL, Latics and the stadium. He shouldn't stir up the animosity from 'tics fans that IL did when he first mooted bidding for the soccer club.

If it's true that Mike Danson is worth £1.1bn then that's a staggering amount of money.

Ian Lenagan goes down as a legend of this club for me. We were in a mess when he took over and since then the club has been transformed. Every decision may not have been popular but he’s got most right and has been fantastic for us. If he is going to sell up then he will be missed IMO. This new guy has plenty of money but any change of ownership always brings worry. I just hope we stick to the model of developing our own and giving the youth its chance.
