McGregor’s £3billion bid to acquire Chelsea:
Conor McGregor has made a fantastic social media bid to buy Chelsea Football Club. Before doing so, he should examine his bank account.
Athlete Conor McGregor has announced his intention to buy Chelsea Football Club – but the arithmetic may not add up.
He posted a screenshot of a WhatsApp chat with the caption “I want to examine this. @chelseafc” on Wednesday afternoon.
In addition to the photo, there was a text message conversation regarding the purchase of the Premier League giants.
“Chelsea for £3 billion,” McGregor Texted.
However, with a net worth of €170 million (£141 million), the Irishman falls far short of Roman Abramovich’s £3 billion estimates.
His money came from selling Irish whiskey maker Proper 12 for $150 million (£112 million) last year.
Averaging between £20 and £25 million per fight, McGregor is noted for selling four of the top five most popular UFC pay-per-view events.
Even if he received the maximum payout, the Irishman would need to play in 40 more tournaments to reach Abramovich’s $3 billion goal — a feat tough to fulfil while on a six-month medical suspension.
Despite losing to Floyd Mayweather in the ring, he made a fortune from boxing.
However, despite winning the fight against ‘Money,’ McGregor is still far behind in the race to buy Chelsea.
