Real estate tycoon Maciek Kaminski ‘steps back from talks to invest heavily into Everton, and has not spoken to owner Farhad Moshiri since the World Cup’… as pressure mounts on the Toffees board with the club stuck in the bottom three
- Maciek Kaminski has shown interest in taking over at Everton since last summer
- He has reportedly cooled his interest in investing in the Premier League club
- Kaminski has not spoken to owner Farhad Moshiri since the World Cup
- This is a blow for Everton, who currently find themselves in the bottom three
Real estate tycoon Maciek Kaminski has reportedly cooled his interest in investing heavily into Everton.
Kaminski tried to take full control of the Premier League outfit last summer, and remained in talks with owner Farhad Moshiri over a potential takeover or investing heavily into the club.
However, he has now taken a step back, and has not held any talks with Moshiri since the World Cup finished last month, according to The Telegraph.

The report claims that there has been little sign of negotiations between Kaminski and Moshiri resuming any time soon.
This serves as another blow for Everton, who are currently struggling on and off the pitch.
The club posted an annual loss of £121million last March, taking their three-year deficit to £372.6m.
This followed heavy spending by the club under Moshiri after his arrival in 2016, and they are now being monitored closely to ensure that they are adhering to Financial Fair Play (FFP) guidelines.
The Toffees’ lack of investment in recent transfer windows has created problems on the pitch, with Frank Lampard’s men stuck in the bottom three having won just three matches all season.
Fans have been growing more frustrated by the week at Goodison Park, directing their anger at Moshiri and the rest of the board.
Moshiri attempted to defend his record at the club last week in a radio interview with talkSPORT, but risked riling the fans even more by suggesting that they had played their part in hiring and firing managers during his tenure.

Everton supporters protested against the board at the team’s latest home game against Southampton on Saturday, which ended in another defeat for Lampard’s side.
The club’s board of directors were instructed to stay away from the stadium for that match due to concerns for their safety, amid allegations that CEO Denise Barrett-Baxendale was put in a headlock by a fan after Everton’s previous home match against Brighton.
Supporters went on to confront defender Yerry Mina after their 2-1 defeat by the Saints, as they questioned his loyalty to the club.
This incident highlighted the toxic atmosphere that has developed at Everton, with Moshiri taking much of the blame, but replacing him could be difficult following Kaminski’s decision to take a step back from discussions to invest in the club.
