Cars, houses, yachts...billionaires can pretty much afford whatever they want.

It seems however that in recent years this is not enough and the ultimate luxury purchase for the staggeringly wealthy is to own a stake in a football club.

Roman Abramovich is possibly the most iconic foreign billionaire to have purchased a football club. In less than 10 years, the Russian tycoon has spent over $2.97 billion on Chelsea seeing the club win just about every major trophy going.
