Among the plans to take over the Girondins de Bordeaux, one of the files would concern Bernard Arnault, the CEO of LVMH, whose fortune is close to 200 billion dollars.
The Girondins of Bordeaux are for sale. We have known this for several weeks, and the withdrawal in high season of the King Street investment fund, which decided to let go of the Aquitaine club in high season. However, despite the difficult championship experienced by the men of Jean-Louis Gasset, who only ensured their maintenance on the last day, Bordeaux does not lack courtiers.
Several recovery files are in the process of being formed. One is led by Didier Quillot, the former director general of the LFP. Another saw the return to the Bordeaux sphere of former president Stéphane Martin, along with John Williams and Pascal Rigo.
The Girondins4Ever site, specializing in club news at the scapular, is advancing another track, and not the least: Bernard Arnault, the president of the luxury group LVMH, would be involved in another project. No less than the second richest man on the planet, whose formula was recently estimated at $ 192.7 billion.
If ever Bordeaux were to pass into the hands of Bernard Arnault, do not expect Bordeaux to spend a colossal fortune in the transfer window, attracting Zinedine Zidane on the bench and Kylian Mbappé in attack. A project similar to that of Stade Rennais, the only Ligue 1 club owned by a French billionaire (François Pinault, fortune estimated at 56.7 billion euros), would be very likely.
But Girondins supporters can undoubtedly forget this track. “It’s rubbish, there is absolutely no question of it”, confided a member of Bernard Arnault’s entourage in Sud-Ouest.
