Ryan Reynolds preparing $1 billion bid to buy second sports team
| Last updated
Ryan Reynolds is reportedly set to add a second sports team to his impressive portfolio, after Wrexham AFC were promoted to the English Football League.
Though the pair have invested millions into restoring the Red Dragons to glory, it hasn’t put off Reynolds from reportedly preparing to buy a second team.
Since the series aired in 2022, the Welsh side has gone from strength to strength with owners Reynolds and McElhenney proudly watching on as their team were promoted last weekend.
However, the Red Notice star isn’t about to abandon his beloved team just days after they beat out Boreham Wood 3-1.
The outlet says that a real estate company, The Remington Group, are looking to purchase the Ottawa Senators, along with Reynolds.
While the actor has yet to comment on the acquisition, it’s thought that the current owners, the Melnyk family, are seeking up to $1 billion (£795 million) for the team.
If you happen to have a spare few billions in the bank, bidders will have until 15 May to make a final offer on the National Hockey League side.
While most of us can only dream of such a sum, Reynolds is expected to break records if his offer is accepted after the upcoming deadline.
It’s likely that 46-year-old will be part of the most expensive takeover in National Hockey League history, beating the eye-watering $900 million (£715 million) that was paid for the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2021.
If he does go through with it, Reynolds is set to follow a similar model to Wrexham, with a complete remodel of the Ottawa Senators’ ice rink, additional investment in the local area and a possible documentary.
We guess football isn’t the only beautiful game, eh Reynolds?
