So I looked on Wiki…! They say: Peter Kenyon is a British businessman who has served as the chief executive of English Premier League clubs Manchester United Football Club and Chelsea Football Club, where he has been involved in contentious transfer dealings.

No idea about the deals, The Guardian have a report on the 3rd party question whilst at Chelsea, but I do like what they go on to say about his time at Manchester United, it’s this sort of experience we need: During his time in his role, the club actually became one of the most financially stable, while simultaneously expanding their global appeal.

The Telegraph also have a profile on Kenyan.

David Conn of The Guardian did an in-depth look at Jorge Mendes in 2014. Obviously, he’s become known for his time at Wolves and is now being linked to us.
