Al Ahli make bumper offer to Blackburn boss Allardyce

Blackburn Rovers boss Sam Allardyce is being offered a bumper deal by UAE's Al Ahli.

The Mail on Sunday says Allardyce could be in line for a multi-million-pound switch to Dubai club Al Ahli to help put Middle East club football on the world map.

Allardyce had a fantastic season at Ewood Park, guiding Rovers to mid-table in the Premier League on a shoestring budget.

He would find transfer cash less difficult to obtain at a club determined to tempt some of the world's biggest names with mind-numbing wages.

The Dubai club, known as the Red Knights, are owned by the Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheik Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum.
