Check out: the top 5 richest club owners in Premier League

In football club ownership, relationships are often strained between owners and fans, and it is rare to find clubs that are truly happy with their owners.

Some of the world's richest individuals have invested in top-flight football clubs and quickly found out that owning a team is no joke.

Our list of the five richest Premier League owners looks at arguably the biggest league in the world.

Ranking number 5: Joe Lewis and Daniel Levy (Tottenham Hotspur) | $6 billion


The Tottenham Hotspur chairman has often been in the spotlight this summer, and this year was no different.

Spurs owner Daniel Levy is known for his bargaining skills and stubbornness. Having earned his reputation as someone not to be messed with, the Englishman was revealed to be not someone to be trifled with by Manchester City.

Tottenham Hotspur superstar Harry Kane was the primary transfer target for Manchester City, and they were willing to pay a three-figure fee to acquire him. However, the deal failed to materialize, and Pep Guardiola later admitted that the negotiations were not easy.

Kane is aware of his situation and recently announced his decision to stay with the club.


Ranking number 4: Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha and family (Leicester City) | $6 billion


Leicester City is in the top tier of Premier League clubs, and its players and fans adore its owner Aiyawatt Srivaddhanaprabha.

The club stunned the world when they won the Premier League in 2016, and have made many good decisions since then. Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha's death in 2016 saw his son Aiyawatt step in, and he has done a fantastic job.

The Foxes have recently signed Caglar Soyuncu, Youri Tielemans, and Wesley Fofana. They have also sold stars like N'Golo Kante, Riyad Mahrez, and Danny Drinkwater and continue to invest in young players.

Ranking number 3: Stan Kroenke (Arsenal) | $10 billion


Arsenal's fall from grace has been sad to watch, and its fans aren't happy with owner Stan Kroenke.

In the past, Kroenke has been criticized for how Arsenal has been run. A lack of spending and the apparent lack of interest has irked the club's fans. The American owns the Rams and Nuggets, as well as Los Angeles.

Despite growing unrest among Arsenal's fans, the Gunners spent heavily this offseason. Last season, Arsenal was abysmal under Mikel Arteta, and so far this season has been even worse.

Ranking number 2: Roman Abramovich (Chelsea) | $11.3 billion


Chelsea fans are jolly at the prospect of having Roman Abramovich as their owner, whereas Arsenal fans might be unhappy with Stan Kroenke.

Since acquiring Chelsea in 2003, Abramovich has not shied away from spending money. Abramovich is not a talkative person, but Chelsea has become one of the biggest clubs in the world under his ownership.

As a team, Chelsea thrives in chaos. They don't stick with a manager for very long, but their recruitment has improved tremendously in recent years, and their youth academy is arguably the best in the world.

Ranking number 1: Sheikh Mansour (Manchester City) | $20 billion


Manchester City, like Chelsea under Roman Abramovich, has become one of the best in the world under Sheikh Mansour.

The arrival of Sheikh Mansour led to Man City signing some of the best players in the world, and they have become one of the biggest spenders in world football. Manchester City has now arguably become the best team in Europe as a result of their spending.

Under Guardiola, Manchester City has enjoyed steady success winning the Premier League and reaching the Champions League final last year.
