Jordanian billionaire Hasan Abdullah Ismaik eyeing off Premier League club

Jordanian billionaire Hasan Abdullah Ismaik is eyeing off a Premier League club.

The Daily Mail says Ismaik, who owns a 60 per cent stake in 1860 Munich, wants to buy into English football after becoming frustrated with attempts to gain voting control at his struggling German second division club.

The construction magnate, named on the Forbes rich list last year with a personal wealth estimated at more than $2billion, is in talks with four English clubs — two in the Premier League and two in the Championship.

He told the Daily Mail: "English football is full of big teams with big histories and with an incredible league and great support from the federation for the small teams and investors.

"There are also the rules that encourage and help investors and give them a hand so that they can make their clubs successful. It might take a month, it might take three years but we are considering investing in a club in England."
