Besides the cash being deposited, the other reason I don't think that Ashley would sell up and walk away is the fact that he has Rafa where he wants him. With profits rolling in as they are, he also has a manager who is loved and idolised in a way that couldn't be replicated anywhere else. Ashley knows that means something to Rafa and it might just persuade him to stay put and compete with the dregs of this league on a shoestring. So it's a win win for porker. Why would he walk away now?
