The reputable Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport has suggested that the majority stake in AS Monaco football club could be bought by a wealthy businessman from Abu Dhabi for the sum of half a billion euros.

The current owner of a 66-percent stake in AS Monaco is Dimitri Rybolovlev, the Russian billionaire Monaco resident.

While the club itself has denied the reports, the Gazzetta remarked that minority shareholder HSH Prince Albert, who takes a keen interest in the club, would not be against such a sale following a string of court cases in which Mr Rybolovlev has been involved.
