Working on a value of 904m, user lifeshard92 explains: We have an estimated number of fans of 27 million worldwide.

Now Im not saying all of them are going to fund this little enterprise.

But thinking of this practically, if one million gave 1,000 less than the cost of a season ticket we would be in the position to buy him out by over 100m, with a bid of 1bn on his valuation.

He added: If we were successful, I think the possibilities of us owning the club are endless.

With 200 then given by these owners, we would be able to fill the kitty up with a 200m transfer budget should we so wish.
