Mansour bin Zayed: Manchester City’s Financial Freedom To Greatness



Securing the services of former FC Barcelona manager is no joke, it requires something beyond confidence, vision, and guts, a club must be prepared to bankroll the Spanish boss’s managerial ideas and tactics, and in the layman’s books, the club got to have the financial liberty to send funds on errands.

Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan (Sheik Mansour) is the deputy prime minister of the United Arab Emirates, minister of presidential undertakings and a member of the royal family of Abu Dhabi. He is the relative half-brother of the current President of UAE, Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

He is likewise the chairman of the ministerial chamber for services, the Emirates Investment Authority and the Emirates Racing Authority. He sits on the Supreme Petroleum Council and the boards of various investment organizations including the International Petroleum Investment Company and the Abu Dhabi Investment Council.

Mansour likewise own huge stakes in various business, including Virgin Galactic and Sky News Arabia, He is also the CEO of Abu Dhabi United Group (ADUG)

At the point when Shiekh Mansour assumed control as Manchester City owner in 2008, the Cityzens didn’t have the history to draw in the sort of players and managers they wanted, but they had a dream, and the Sheik had exactly 23billion dollars in total assets.


Perhaps Money can’t get you history, but it’s beyond any doubt that it can enable you to modify it in gold, and that has been the situation for the Cityzens since Sheik Mansour took care of business in Manchester. Mansour began to look all starry-eyed at the Premier League

Like Chelsea’s Roman Abramovich, Mansour’s interests in football doesn’t simply rest with one club, and that wild romance for football with multiple clubs will see Shiekh Mansour sit next to Gianni Infantino, FIFA president, and Florentino Perez, Real Madrid president as UAE club Al Jazira go up against Real Madrid in the Semi-finals of the 2017 FIFA Club World Cup on Wednesday evening.

Obviously, the 48-year-old deputy prime minister wouldn’t be brimming with certainty, given the unnerving and overpowering countenance of holders and European Champions, Real Madrid, but in any event, win or lose, Sheik Mansour can take comfort in the way that while Manchester City are ruling toward one end, one of his other little football ventures is raising its head at the very summit of Club football.

Sheik Mansour claims City Football Group; Manchester City F.C, Melbourne City F.C and New York City F.C which he purchased for 376 million euros in 2008/09. In 2015, in one of his various business deals, Sheik Mansour sold 13% of City Football Group at a similar prime.
