The Al Nayhan family is synonymous with Abu Dhabi’s wealth and it is with his   personal bank account that Sheikh Mansour has spent £210million on buying   the 90 per cent Manchester City stake.
Sheikh Mansour has a deep love of sport – he is chairman of Al Jazeera   Football Club and chairman of the Emirates Horse Racing Authority.
He is a key political figure and is a member of the UAE Federal Cabinet and   Minister of Presidential Affairs. In business, he is chairman of First Gulf   Bank and chairman of the International Petroleum Investment Company.
He is married to the similarly fabulously wealthy Sheikha Manal bin Mohammed   bin Rashid Al-Maktoum, daughter of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al-Maktoum,   the ruler of Dubai.


But despite this relationship, there is an intense rivalry between Abu Dhabi   and Dubai, the smaller but more entrepreneurial neighbour, who are way ahead   in the race to become the global business and sports centre in the region.
Abu Dhabi has made no secret of its desire to catch up and it is this desire   to tap into top sporting knowledge may also explain the lightning speed with   which Sheikh Mansour snapped up the stake in Manchester City. It was only at   the beginning of the summer that Thaksin Shinawatra made it known to a few   trusted allies that he wanted to sell his stake. By July, he had begun early   negotiations with three Gulf investors, who are currently unknown.

In Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mansour had been looking to invest in a Premier League   club for a while. He caught wind of the deal and asked a trusted associate,   Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim, chief executive of Hydra Properties, to approach   Thaksin on his behalf.
Astonishingly it was actually only three weeks ago that the charismatic Arab   businessman approached Thaksin with an offer to buy the club at a premium.


Thaksin immediately saw the seriousness of the approach and sought expert   advice from Amanda Staveley, the glamorous private financier who came to   prominence recently for advising Sheikh Maktoum on his protracted bid for   Liverpool.
The negotiations with City were kept top secret, although careful observers of   Manchester City’s directors’ box at the game against West Ham on Aug 24   would have been given a clue. In the box Thaksin was flanked by Ali Jassem,   a trusted adviser of Dr Al Fahim and behind him was Staveley.
The finer details were thrashed out last week before Staveley flew to Abu   Dhabi at the weekend to conclude the deal late on Sunday.

What happened to the hundreds of millions Beckham got when he signed with LA? It was something like USD300+ million if memory serves.

According to Hu Run Report,  Liang Wen’gen is China richest with Net worth: USD$11 billion. One interesting note is that they are about 1000 people in China with Net worth of USD$1 billion.
I forecast that in 10 years time at least one of them will be in the world top 10 richest man.

The people of Wukan might not believe in your theory.

Rudi, the Wukan issue has already been settled and the people there are quite satisfied with the result. The provincial government was a bit late to step in to deal with the bad local officials in Wukan, which caused people's dissatisfaction.
