1. Newcastle – Saudi Public Investment Fund (£320bn)

Newcastle United fans were currently the happiest fans on earth not because of the current form of the club or achievements but because of the hope that their new rich owner brought. The club was taken over from Mike Ashley after 14 years by Saudi Arabia PIF, chaired by Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman. They are now the richest club not only in England but also the world. 

2. Man City – Sheikh Mansour (£22.9bn)

Manchester City was made to compete and win the trophy after the acquisition by United Arab Emirates' deputy Prime Minister. He bought City in 2008 and took them from mid table team to title contenders. Sheikh Mansour is chairman of International Petroleum Investment Company and also has a stake in Virgin Galactic. He was able to attract top coaches and players around the world such as Pep Guardiola.

3. Chelsea – Roman Abramovich (£9.6bn)

The Chelsea boss is known for his short term approach in running the club, which has been yielding results for him. The Russian billionaire bought Chelsea in 2003 for £140 million and the club now has a history, thanks to him. With him Chelsea has won several silverware including two Champions League.

4. Arsenal – Stan Kroenke (£6.35bn)

The Gunners' owner is not that loved at the club since taking over, the American is rarely seen at the Emirate stadium as he has other sports to attend to. Arsenal has fallen away from the glory day under his charge. He's not the fans favourite because of the way he runs the club. 

He married Walmart heiress Ann Walton in 1974 and later founded a property development firm, the Kroenke Group, in 1983. He also owns NFL side LA Rams and NBA franchise Denver Nuggets, first becoming involved in Arsenal in 2007 before taking a majority share four years later.

5. Aston Villa – Nassef Sawiris (£5.3bn)

The Egyptian billionaire bought Aston Villa July 2018 and made sure Villa won promotion to the Premier League within the first 12 months under him. His wealth stems from owning numerous construction, engineering and building companies. He spent over £200 million in two seasons to make the club compete for top flight.
