EPL news: football team owners, Manchester United, Manchester City, equity, possessions

The Saudi hereditary prince Mohammed bin Salman has stepped up his proposed acquisition of $ 6.8 billion dollars from Manchester United.

And if the 33-year-old arrived at Old Trafford he would not be the first oil-rich Middle Eastern millionaire to win a club in Manchester.

    Sheikh Mansour v Mohammed bin SalmanSource: The sun

    Sheikh Mansour did the same over a decade ago, taking Man City to three Premier League titles, three League Cups and the FA Cup in the most successful period of their history.

    It is reported that Bin Salman – who has distanced himself from the acquisition – is motivated by the desire to compete with Mansour, a member of the Abu Dhabi royal family.

    But how does the Crown Prince deal with the Sheikh?

    Let's take a look through their lifestyle and wealth – and the disputes.

    Wealth

    Neither is fighting for money.

    Bin Salman has an estimated personal wealth of about $ 12.5 billion – although he has almost all the wealth of Saudi Arabia at his fingertips.

    Sheikh Mansour's personal fortune would be about $ 31 billion.

    Politics and business

    Bin Salman is the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, the son of the king and the de facto leader of the Gulf state as King Salman is unable to govern fully due to dementia.

    Bin Salman is also the deputy prime minister and has attempted to present himself as a moderate reformer.

    Mansour is the Deputy Prime Minister of the United Arab Emirates and Minister of Presidential Affairs.

    The owner of the city of Manchester, Sheikh Mansour, has financed the club with the most successful period in its history "srcset =" https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/b4aab8fb95b696611847963baa8c4ed0?width=320 320w, https: // cdn. newsapi.com.au/image/v1/b4aab8fb95b696611847963baa8c4ed0?width=400 400w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/b4aab8fb95b696611847963baa8c4ed0? width = 480 480w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com. au / image / v1 / b4aab8fb95b696611847963baa8c4ed0? width = 650 650w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/b4aab8fb95b696611847963baa8c4ed0? width = 700 700w "sizes =" (min-width: 415px) 100vw, (min -width: 768px) 100vw, (minimum width: 1025px) 60vw, (minimum width: 1280px) 50vw "itemprop =" contentURL

    However, while Bin Salman focused on his political career as a leader of Saudi Arabia, Mansour spent much more time in his portfolio of personal activities.

    Mansour is head of the International Petroleum Investment Company, which has holdings in a number of companies worldwide.

    The owner of Man City has a 32% stake in Virgin Galactic – investing more than $ 362.5 million in the company in 2009 – and a 9.1% stake in Daimler, the parent company of Mercedes-Benz and others.

    The Abu Dhabi Media Investment Corporation of Mansour also founded Sky News Arabia and the English-language newspaper The National.

    Family

    Bin Salman is part of the House of Saud, the dominant family of Saudi Arabia since 1744.

    The family has about 15,000 people, although most of the power and wealth is found with around 2,000 at the time.

    The Al Saud family has a combined wealth of $ 2.3 trillion – with many political commentators stating that the amount is a huge underestimation.

    Mansour is the half-brother of the current president of the United Arab Emirates and a member of the ruling Al Nahyan family.

    The oil-rich family has an estimated combined wealth of at least $ 272 billion and has driven the construction of the Dubai vacation center.

    Bin Salman married to Sarah Bint Mashhoor – known as the 'Barbie Princess' – in 2008, the couple has four children.

    There are unconfirmed rumors that the Saudi has three other wives.

    Sheikh Mansour has two wives and six children.

    He married Sheikha Alia bint bint Mohammed bin Butti Al Hamed in the mid-1990s, with whom he has a son and Manal bint Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum.

    Manal, who has two daughters and three children with Sheikh Mansour, is the president of the Dubai Women Establishment.

    Sheikh Mansour has a great interest in Richard Branson's Virgin Galactic "srcset =" https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/5750ce655aaac32f90461d8e36dad62b?width=320 320w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com.au / image / v1 / 5750ce655aaac32f90461d8e36dad62b? width = 400 400w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/5750ce655aaac32f90461d8e36dad62b? width = 480 480w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/ 5750ce655aaac32f90461d8e36dad62b?

    Houses and holidays

    Both Sheikh Mansour and Mohammed bin Salman have full access to the sumptuous presidential palaces where their families call home.

    Both are lovers of the Costa del Sol in Spain and Mansour bought the 20,000 acres of Los Quintos de San Martin in 2016 for $ 76 million.

    His family owns and regularly stays at the Emirates Palace hotel, described as a seven-star hotel in Abu Dhabi.

    Mansour and the managing family of the United Arab Emirates have helped to create a Dubai holiday center "srcset =" https://cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/d7db270fcf7e94598b8c26521090691a?width=320 320w, https: // cdn. newsapi.com.au / image / v1 / d7db270fcf7e94598b8c26521090691a? width = 400 400w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/d7db270fcf7e94598b8c26521090691a? width = 480 480w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1 / d7db270fcf7e94598b8c26521090691a? width = 650 650w, https: //cdn.newsapi.com.au/image/v1/d7db270fcf7e94598b8c26521090691a? width = 700 700w "sizes =" (min-width: 415px) 100vw, (min-width: 768px) 100vw, (min-width: 1025px) 60vw, (min-width: 1280px) 50vw "itemprop =" contentURL

    Bin Salman went better with his holiday mat, however.

    In 2015 he conquered the most expensive house in the world – the $ 417 MILLION of Chateau Louis XIV, west of Paris.

    The new 10-bedroom building was designed to look like a 17th-century palace and boasts a cinema, a deluxe pool and a glass-bottomed moat to watch the koi carp.

    The fountains can be controlled by a tablet or a cell phone, while the 57 acre plot has immaculate gardens and a maze.

    Yachts

    Bin Salman can win the battle on the ground, but Mansour wins the battle on the seven seas.

    This is because although the Saudi posses the extravagant Serene, Mansour owns the Topaz.

    Not that any of us dream of being on board the Serene.

    The 439-foot superyacht was the ninth largest in the world when it was built for vodka magnate Yuri Shefler for 362.5 million dollars in 2011.

    Bin Salman bought the boat, which hosts 24 guests and 52 crew members, in 2015 for 689 million dollars.

    Bill Gates, once rented for a week for $ 9 million, has seven bridges, two helipads and a full salt water pool.

    However, in August 2017 it suffered significant damage to the hull after it ran aground off the coast of Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

    The Mansour Topaz yacht far exceeds the Serene.

    Built in 2012, the Sheikh spit over $ 580m to build the 482-foot yacht that comes with jacuzzis, two helipads, a swim platform and eight levels.

    It now has a value of over $ 725 million.

    It is said that the super yacht Topaz is worth 725 million dollars and is the fifth largest yacht in the world - it boasts two helipads, three pools, a cinema and eight levels.

    Cars

    Once again, Mansour definitely has the most luxurious car collection.

    In fact, it seems that Bin Salman is barely interested in cars.

    Some reports claim to have a modest fleet (compared to other billionaires at least) with a Ferrari, Lamborghini and Bugatti in his garage.

    On the other hand, Sheikh Mansour never has enough.

    His personal collection includes $ 1.5 million Lamborghini Reventon, CINQUE Bugatti Veyrons – which cost more than £ 1 million each – as well as a £ 2.5 million Ferrari Enzo and a 5.5 million Porsche 911 GT1 dollars.

    Mansour has also been instrumental in bringing Formula 1 to Abu Dhabi and has a stake in the parent company and Mercedes Daimler AG.

    Sheikh Mansour is a much more visible sports lover.

    In addition to his love for Formula 1 and football, Mansour is also the president of the Emirates Horse Racing Authority and the patron of a local half-marathon.

    It has not only invested more than $ 1.8 billion in Manchester City, the City Football Group owns and partly owns a myriad of clubs around the world.

    They brought New York City FC to Major League Soccer in the United States and own Melbourne City in Australia.

    The holding also has holdings in Yokohama F. Marinos in Japan, Club Atletico Torque in Uruguay and Girona in Spain.

    There are plans to expand further in Europe and Africa.

    Apart from its link with Manchester United, Bin Salman's only other connection to the world of sport is the second Saudi division, which bears his name.

    disputes

    Both men and their families have been linked to various human rights abuses.

    Bin Salman is considered the architect of the war in Yemen, which included indiscriminate bombs, while he ordered the blockade of the country that triggered a famine and a humanitarian crisis that killed tens of thousands.

    Human Rights Watch director Sarah Leah Whitson described her regime as "despotism", while there was international protest when dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in Turkey last year.

    Sheikh Mansour has been accused of using Manchester City and football to "recycle" the image of his state, having only had one game in ten years.

    Homosexuality remains illegal and is a capital offense in the emirate.

    The regime in power is also accused of a series of human rights violations, while flogging, stoning and amputation remain all legal punishments.
