The World’s Third-Richest Man Wants to Buy AC Milan and Sign Leo Messi

The World’s Third-Richest Man Wants to Buy AC Milan and Sign Leo Messi

The world third-richest man is considering buying AC Milan – and he wants to reunite Leo Messi and Pep Guardiola at the San Siro Stadium.

Frenchman Bernard Arnault is worth an astonishing $106 billion, and already owns companies such as Louis Vuitton, Moët and has shares in Netflix, and now it seems he wants to make a foray into the crazy world of European football.

He might have just turned 70, but Arnault is interested in parting with a serious amount of money to help restore the fallen Italian giants according to La Republica, per AS.

AC Milan were once one of the most feared football teams on the continent, and regularly won the Champions League in the 1990s and 2000s, but they currently languish in 11th place in Serie A and don’t show any signs of turning things around any time soon.

Milan haven’t won the Champions League since 2007, or the Italian top-flight since 2011, but Arnault wouldn’t be messing around, should he get involved.

Known to own a massive collection of rare art, Arnault has previously invested in companies such as Fendi, DKNY, Marc Jacobs, and even donated a massive £200 million towards the restoration of the Notre-Dam Cathedral after a fire earilier this year.
