Wilfred Ndidi’s Leicester City owner Khun Aiyawatt, who succeeds his late father Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha, is richer than loanee Odion Ighalo’s Manchester United owner, Malcolm Irving Glazer.
Now that’s not even the big story here because Newcastle will have the richest owner in the Premier League should Saudi Arabia Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman complete his sensational takeover.
The Mike Ashley era at the Magpies is reportedly coming to an end as the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia edges closer to an extraordinary £300m deal.
TalkSPORT in a rich list that it compiled features the wealthy owners of all 20 Premier League clubs, with the Saudi Arabia Crown Prince topping the list.
The publication claims that the Public Investment Fund's £260bn would skyrocket them ahead of Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour, who is second in the rankings with £23.3bn.
Chelsea's Roman Abramovich and Arsenal's Stan Kroenke ranked third and fourth respectively, while Wolves owner Guo Guangchang rounded off the top five.
