There was once a time when Manchester City were counting their blessings for just being in the Premier League with the club in relegation battles and no trophy for decades along with no financial backing.
Fast forward to 2008, and City become one of the latest clubs to be backed by billionaires in the form of the Abu Dhabi royal family member, Sheikh Mansour. Now, the Manchester outfit are one of the most recognisable teams out there and have the ability to pay for and attract anybody in world football.
Mansour has been the owner for close to 14 years now and after being born into wealth, the deputy prime minister of Abu Dhabi has built a business portfolio amassing billions more and even started City Football Group, which now has clubs in four different continents.
The net worth of Mansour is believed to be $21bn, making him the second wealthiest Premier League owner.
