MOHAMMED BIN SALMAN could become one of the richest owners in the Premier League if he buys Manchester United.
The world's richest football club, currently owned by the Glazer family, could be even wealthier after reports suggest they have already resisted two offers.
Bin Salman, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, is prepared to part with £3billion to take ownership of the Red Devils.
And that wouldn't even be half of his own personal fortune – thought to top £7bn.
He already lives a life of luxury by splashing out on a fancy yacht, a French home and even some rare art.
But his next purchase might just be his most expensive yet.
If he does create history by purchasing Manchester United, he will become the third richest owner in England's top flight.
Here's how they rank.
Bin Salman's £7bn can only be eclipsed by the owners of Manchester City and Chelsea.
Sheikh Mansour, an Emirati royal, is worth a staggering £23.3bn and tops the list ahead of Russian billionaire Roman Abramovich with a net worth of £9.6bn.
Not far behind
Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke is close behind on £6.8bn so Gunners fans have every reason to be frustrated over the lack of transfer business.
Wolves' Guo Guangchang has around £5.2bn just ahead of Aston Villa's Nassef Sawiris with £5bn.
Mega-rich Leicester owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha has £4.6bn while Tottenham's Joe Lewis is worth £3.9bn.
Then come The Glazers with £3.6bn and Southampton's Gao Jisheng with a wealth of £3.1bn.
Falling shy of the £3bn mark with a measly £2.7bn is Joshua Harris of Crystal Palace, Newcastle's pantomime villain Mike Ashley (£2.3bn) and Liverpool's John Henry (£2.1bn).
Everton's Farhad Moshiri has a personal fortune of £1.5bn.
Brighton's Tony Bloom has £1.3bn while West Ham duo David Sullivan and David Gold have a combined £1.2bn.
Different ball park
Falling out the billions and into the millions are Bournemouth's Maxim Demin with £900m, Abdullah bin Musa'ed of Sheffield United with £198m, Gino Pozzo of Watford (£93m) and Mike Garlick or Burnley (£62m).
Finally it's Noriwch's duo of Delia Smith and Michael Wynn-Jones worth around £23m.
