2. Alisher Usmanov

Club: Arsenal

Worth: $18.6 billion

Despite a stake in excess of 30% in Arsenal, the Uzbekistan billionaire Usmanov has now place on the Arsenal board.

It seems unfathomable that a club can reject £100m in hard cash just because it doesn't fall in line with their business plan. But that is exactly what Arsenal did when Usmanov urged the club to spend his money in order to help get them back to the top of world football.

Usmanov has made his fortune in the metal and mining industry but is now desperate to invest in his beloved Arsenal. Until Kroenke sells, that's not happening. Sorry Arsenal fans.
