Club: Manchester City

Worth: $31.5 billion

No surprises here.

The richest man in the Premier League owns the club that have spent over a $1 billion in transfer fees since 2008.

Manchester City were elevated from relegation candidates to Premier League winners in under five years by UAE oil money as the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Presidential Affairs plows his fortune into Eastlands.

He isn't just investing in the team though. Manchester City's brand will extend to the MLS with a partnership with a New York based club and the Etihad Stadium will be increased to over 60,000.
