The wealth of Man United’s possible owner Elon Musk - compared to Newcastle, Man City, Liverpool & others

Newcastle United are competing with 13-time Premier League champions Manchester United for major honours for the first time in just under 30 years.

The two sides - who produced some of the most memorable moments in Premier League history during the 1990s - are both currently sat in the top four and are looking to secure qualification for next season’s Champions League. They will also go head-to-head for the Carabao Cup later this month when they meet in the final at Wembley.

The Red Devils will head into the final three months of the season trying to put off-field issues behind them after their owners, the Glazer family, signalled they are ready to bring an end to their controversial ownership at Old Trafford.

A whole manner of weird and wonderful names have been linked with a deal for the club - with Tesla owner and Twitter CEO Elon Musk now said to be considering making an offer of around £4.5bn for the Red Devils. But how would Musk’s wealth compare to other owners around the Premier League?
