Dangote reveals when he’ll buy Arsenal

Africa's richest man, Aliko Dangote, has stated that he will consider
buying another football club if Premiership club, Arsenal, would not
be sold to him.

Dangote, who is a fan of the club and has for years been talking about
buying the British club, disclosed that he would buy the club only
after he has completed one of the world's biggest oil refineries in
Lagos, Nigeria

"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," he said in an interview with Bloomberg TV
at the New Economy Forum in Singapore.

American businessman, Stan Kroenke, who is worth $8bn is the sole
owner of Arsenal club.
