Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote has said that he plans to buy Arsenal in 2021 after the completion of his ongoing projects.
Aliko is presently building what will be the largest single-train refinery in the world in Lekki, Lagos State – the Dangote refinery, with production scheduled to start later in 2020.
Stan is the majority shares holder at Arsenal and the rich businessman has said he will think about buying the club when he is ready.
He added that it is an impossible move right now.
His words, “It is a team that, yes, I would like to buy someday, but what I keep saying is we have $20billion worth of projects and that’s what I really want to concentrate on,”
“I’m trying to finish building the company and then after we finish, maybe sometime in 2021 we can.
“I’m not buying Arsenal right now, I’m buying Arsenal when I finish all these projects because I’m trying to take the company to the next level.”
Arsenal are presently 10th in the EPL table with 28 points after 22 games – 4 points adrift of a European spot.
