Nigeria’s billionaire businessman Aliko Dangote has said he’ll buy another football club if Arsenal owners won’t sell him the club.
Dangote has always been a big fan of Arsenal and for a while has been speaking about buying the English Premier League club.
First though, Dangote wants to complete his massive refinery in Lagos, after which, he tells Bloomberg, “We’ll have an excess amount of cash to start playing around with.”
He’s very attached to Arsenal, he said, but would have to move on if Kroenke refuses to sell to him. He has to have a club, he said.
I’m very attached to Arsenal but if he won’t sell, I might have to change. I’m very much a fan of football. I have to have a club. I don’t have to own Arsenal.
