The Premier League is home to some of the richest clubs in the world, with a number of individuals involved in the workings of a club. Here, we take a look at five of the richest owners in the league.
5. Nassef Sawiris and Wes Eden (Aston Villa) – Sawiris £4.6bn, Eden £2bn
Nassef Sawiris and Wes Eden rescued the club from the ownership of Dr Tony Xia in July 2018 and have overseen the their return to the top flight and funded a complete overhaul of Dean Smith’s squad in the summer of 2019. Sawiris £4.6bn, Eden £2bn
4. Fosun International / Guo Guangchang (Wolves) – £5.4bn
The Chinese investment company have transformed the club’s fortunes by putting in money and helping them sign players who one would not normally associate with a club coming from the Championship.
So impressive have they been that they are considered as the favourites to win the Europa League this season.
3. Stan Kroenke (Arsenal) – £8bn
The American tycoon’s KSE company who took over the club in 2011, also owns a number of US sports teams, including the NFL’s LA Rams and NBA side Denver Nuggets. However, he has come in for criticism from the fans over his handling of the club in the recent past.
2. Roman Abramovich (Chelsea) – £9.2bn
Russian-Israeli, Roman Abramovich bought Chelsea way back in 2003 and the club has seen a change of fortunes under his ownership as they have won five Premier League titles, one Champions League and two Europa League honours since then.
1. Abu Dhabi Group / Sheikh Mansour (Manchester City) – £17.7bn
Sheikh Mansour’s takeover of City in 2008 arguably changed the face of football in England as he has turned the club into a powerhouse while also leading them to numerous trophies over time.
The club pulled off a coup by hiring Pep Guardiola and look set to dominate the footballing landscape in years to come.
