Nigerian billionaire Aliko Dangote, in an interview with Bloomberg Business says he is still interested in buying Arsenal Football Club.
In his word “I still hope, one day at the right price, that I’ll buy the team,”
“I might buy it, not at a ridiculous price but a price that the owners won’t want to resist. I know my strategy.
“We have $16bn-worth [€14bn] of investments in the next few years. Right now I want to take my own business to a certain level. Once I finish on that trajectory, then maybe an offer will follow,”
Dangote is an Arsenal fan but has criticized Arsene Wenger, claiming that the 65-year-old “needs to change his style a bit” and warning that the club “need new direction”.
