Africa’s richest man, Aliko Dangote, has said he will consider buying another football club if Premiership club, Arsenal, would not be sold to him.
The billionaire is a fan of the club and has for years been talking about buying the British club.
He disclosed that he would buy the club only after he has completed one of the world’s biggest oil refineries in Lagos, Nigeria
Speaking with Bloomberg TV at the New Economy Forum in Singapore, Dangote said: “By the time we’ve finished the world’s biggest oil refinery in Lagos, we’ll be a $30bn company in terms of revenue.
“We’ll have an excess amount of cash to start playing around with to buy Arsenal.
“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’ll like to have a club. I don’t have to own Arsenal.”
