33-year-old Egyptian businessman Loutfy Mansour is weighing up whether to make a bid for Chelsea, according to reports in the English media.
Mansour is believed to be a season ticket holder at Stamford Bridge, which makes it unsurprising that he would be interested in taking the Blues off Roman Abramovich‘s hands.
He is CEO of Man Capital, a private investment fund which is a subsidiary of Mansour Group, owned by his father Mohamad Mansour.
However, his Linkedin profile also describes him as an “investor” at Right to Dream. The organisation was bought by Mansour Group last year, and it is heavily involved in football.
Originally set up by former Manchester United scout Tom Vernon, it created a number of academies across Africa, linking up with American universities for scholarships. It bought Danish Superliga outfit FC Nordsjaelland in 2015.
After its takeover by the Mansour Group, it has now been reconstituted as ManSports. This new entity could well be the vehicle used to buy Chelsea.
