English club El Sheffield United, which recently rose to the top football division in the UK, is said to have received a loan of more than three million euros from Osama Bin Laden's family.

The information was released by the Daily Mail, after the British newspaper had access to the lawsuit between the owners of the club, Kevin McCabe and Saudi Prince Abdullah Bin Mosaad Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

The € 3.5 million was reportedly loaned to the English football club in 2017 through the 'Delta Project', funded by the family of former Al Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden, who died in 2011 during a U.S. military operation.

During the fourth day of hearing witnesses to the dispute between the owners of El Sheffield United, the Saudi prince's lawyer assured that McCabe knew where the money came from.

The owners of the club that rose to the Premier League this year by becoming runner-up to the Championship have been at war for some time. Abdullah Bin Mosaad Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud accuses McCabe of "conspiracy" and "illegitimate and harmful conduct" and wants him to stop being his partner.
