Former Arsenal midfielder Mathieu Flamini has hinted he may try to buy the club in the future after seeing the success of his company GF Biochemicals.
The Frenchman founded the company in 2008 with business partner Pasquale Granata. Since retiring in 2019, Flamini has amassed a fortune after the company became the first in the world to mass-produce levulinic acid.
The fuel it uses is made from plant waste and can be used to make plastic in an environmentally friendly way.
“We founded GF Biochemicals with the goal of finding sustainable alternatives to petroleum products,” Flamini said previously.
Arsenal captain Martin Odegaard says leaving Real Madrid to join Arsenal was his greatest decision.
The former Gunners ace’s net worth has been boosted after being appointed as the company’s chief executive.
In 2020, Forbes estimated that his and Granata’s shares in the company were each worth £10 billion, 30 times Cristiano Ronaldo’s net worth.
The 39-year-old has made more than 420 appearances in his career, more than half of which came with Arsenal. He won the FA Cup three times in 2005, 2014 and 2015, and was the Champions League runner-up in 2006.
After spells at AC Milan and Crystal Palace, the Marseille native ended his career at Getafe. However, Flamini hinted at a possible return to the Emirates Stadium, but only at boardroom level.
“Football is the number one sport that attracts so much attention and the hot issues of this world should also be on the agenda of the governing bodies,” He said Sportsman.
“This is a world where I belong. If there is the right opportunity and the right discussion at the right time, if I meet people with the same vision and mentality and desire to use football to achieve something, I would love it,” Flamini continued.
“Obviously these clubs (OM, Arsenal and AC Milan) have a special place in my heart. I will never forget where I come from. In life you never know but it all depends on the right opportunity. I Really believe in right time, right place, right person.
“We’ll see what the future is made of. I’m a believer. If you want something bad enough, the universe usually brings it to you. Let’s see what the universe brings.”
