Newcastle Top, Man Utd Ninth; the Premier League owners & # 039; Rich List – originally published on Sportslens.com

The failed takeover of Newcastle United by the Saudi Arabian Public Investment Fund leaves Sheikh Mansour as the richest owner in the Premier League.

Mansour has changed the town's fortune since acquiring the club, but how does his fortune compare to the rest of the top division? We'll take a closer look.

1. Manchester City – Sheikh Mansour – £ 23.3 billion

Mansour is the United Arab Emirates' Deputy Prime Minister and also owns the Abu Dhabi Media Investment Corporation.

He completed the City acquisition in 2008 and his huge investment has helped the club win four Premier League titles.

2. Chelsea – Roman Abramovich – £ 9.6bn

It doesn't seem too long ago that Abramovich changed the face of English football with his massive investment in Chelsea.

However, things have moved on massively since his time with the £ 140million acquisition in 2003 and his fortune dwarfed by Mansour.

3. Fulham – Tony Khan – £ 7.1 billion

Khan, a Pakistani-born American billionaire, businessman and sports tycoon, owns Flex-N-Gate, a US auto company.

In addition to being owned by Fulham Khan, the NFL owns the Jacksonville Jaguars and is a co-owner of All Elite Wrestling (AEW).

4. Arsenal – Stan Kroenke – £ 6.8bn

Los Angeles Rams owner Stan Kroenke took majority control of Arsenal in 2011, and it is fair to say that he has overseen a disappointing time at the club.

Despite its Kroenke, it has failed to invest sufficient resources in the roster and the Gunners are now lagging behind all of their main competitors.

5. Wolverhampton Wanderers – Guo Guangchang – £ 5.2 billion

Guangchang is chairman of the Fosun Group and has invested significant funds to make Wolves the top half team in the Premier League to establish.

Having suffered major financial problems in the past, the Midlands outfit is now on solid foundations and looks good to keep improving over the next few seasons.

6. Aston Villa – Nassef Sawiris – £ 5 billion

Sawiris is one of the richest families in Egypt with a background in construction and engineering.

In summer 2018, he replaced Tony Xia as owner of the villa. The funding helped the club return to the Premier League after a three-year absence.

7. Leicester City – Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha – £ 4.6 billion

Srivaddhanaprabha, AKA Top, became chairman of the club after his father tragically fell in a helicopter crash in front of King Power Stadium in 2018 Way had been killed.

Under family ownership, the club notoriously won the Premier League in 2016 and remains toward the upper echelons of the top division.

8. Tottenham Hotspur – Joe Lewis – £ 3.9bn

Lewis has had a stake in his Spurs since 2001 when his UK national investment company bought a controlling stake in the club from Alan Sugar.

During his tenure he oversaw Spurs' move from White Hart Lane to the impressive Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

9. Manchester United – The Glazers – £ 3.6bn

Real estate tycoon Malcolm Glazer led the United acquisition by buying shares in the club between 2003 and 2005.

Glazer's sons Avram and Joel replaced him as co-chair. After his death in 2014, their possession of the club continues to be unpopular with most United fans.

10. Crystal Palace – Joshua Harris – £ 3.67 billion

Investment expert Joshua Harris teamed up with David Blitzer in 2011 to take control of Crystal Palace. Steve Parish retains his interest and remains Chairman.

Harris and Blitzer worked together to purchase several other sports teams, including the NHL's New Jersey Devils and the NBA's Philadelphia 76ers.
