Gary Lineker could be in line for a shock move to BT Sports after the end of next month’s Premier League auction. BBC will have to do without Gary Linker’s services if they loose the Premier League coverage from next season.
Gary Lineker is BBC’s star presenter at the moment and MOTD show is one of the most renowened shows in the World Football. BBC can not afford the loss of MOTD to any other rival, but if it does happen, BBC will not be able to hold Lineker for long, considering his high salary package.
BT Sports have seen Gary Lineker as the ideal man to lead their Champions League coverage from next season since BT Sports have won the right for exclusive Champions Legaue coverage by slashing an astronomical sum of £897 Million. BT Sports are ideally looking to add big names to their Champions Legaue coverage panel and Gary Lineker leads tops their list and certainly he fits the bill for BT.
Gary Lineker, an ex-England and Spurs striker has a very influential figure in the game and his opinions are widely regarded as one of the best and most unbiased in the Football showbiz. Linelar would add glamour and credibility to BT’s covergae for next season’s Champions Legaue.
BT Sports are waiting for the result for Premier League auction, which is due to take place next month. If BT Sports trumps BBC for Prmier League coverage and MOTD, BT Sports will push on to make sure Lineker is on board with BT Sports from next season.
Gary Lineker could be the second leading Sports Anchor to leave their current employer. Andy Townsend has been informed by ITV that his contract will not be renewed and he is free to look elese where for his next broadcasting job. With Townsend already available and Gary Lineker’s proposed availability, BT Sports could conjur an unbeatable Sports Presenters panel for their Champions League and projected Premier League coverage from 2015-16 season.
