Dangote Plan, Securing Chelsea

Dangote Plan, Securing Chelsea…

The Richest Man in Africa, Aliko Dangote, has initially revealed his interest back in 2017 to own a prestigious EPL club, Arsenal, but all his attempt failed. He never gives up as he keeps on advancing to seal a deal with the majority shares owner Stan Kroenke. He noted that if his attempt to buy the London Club fails again then he is going to go for another club in the league… according to what was received by the NIGERIA NEWS. Could it possibly be Chelsea?

 

As of 25th March 2019, Arsenal has been the 6th most valuable football club as ranked by the Forbes with 2.2 million dollars in value and 531 million dollars in revenue. Chelsea happens to be the 7th most valuable.

Dangote has spoken in Singapore and restated that he again desire to bid to buy Arsenal because “I am very attached to the club”. As of February 2019, his net-worth happened to be 10.8 billion dollars and he was ranked by Forbes as the 100th richest person in the world. About five years ago, in 2014, he was peaked by Forbes Magazine as the 23rd richest person in the world making him be the richest black man on earth as at then.

The falling in his rank might have been the reason behind him diversifying recently into an oil refinery and having a high interest in purchasing an EPL club. Though he has great enthusiasm for Gunners club, as a business mogul he might not waste time on them.

 

He has been willing to buy Arsenal since 2010. He once made a statement that “We will go after Arsenal from 2020… even if somebody buys, we will still go after it,” Dangote told Reuters. He, however, makes it clear that the construction of the oil refinery has made him rule out the purchase for some years ago.

He also made a statement by 2017 when he said he thought Kroenke would budge for the right price. He further added that:

“If they get the right offer, I’m sure they would walk away,” he said. “Someone will give them an offer that will make them seriously consider walking away. And when we finish the refinery, I think we will be in a position to do that.”
