After cashing in from the sale of his mobile phone company, Ryan Reynolds is being implored by Wrexham supporters to acquire Erling Haaland, the team's star player.
The buzz started when it was disclosed that T-Mobile is acquiring Mint Mobile, a wireless network operator in which Reynolds has a stake.
It has now been confirmed that the actor who starred in Deadpool will earn more than £1 billion from the business transaction. Consequently, numerous fans have begun speculating about how he should use the funds.
In the event that you were unaware, Wrexham football club was purchased by Reynolds and his fellow actor, Rob McElhenney, who stars in It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The acquisition occurred in November 2020 after the two revealed their interest in the team a few months prior.
The unexpected but highly appreciated partnership between one of Hollywood's leading actors and the Welsh club was announced in a video posted on the official Wrexham FC Twitter page by the two stars themselves. Since then, fans have been abuzz with excitement about this unique collaboration.
The duo proceeded to feature in a documentary series chronicling their improbable acquisition of the Wrexham AFC football club, as described in the official synopsis: "Welcome to Wrexham is a docuseries tracking the dreams and worries of Wrexham, a working-class town in North Wales, UK, as two Hollywood stars take ownership of the town's historic yet struggling football club."
Fast forward a few years and Reynolds is still happily leading the fifth tier football club, having branched out into various other ventures.
One of these ventures includes his minority stake in the mobile network operator company as well.
According to Variety, T-Mobile is poised to acquire the corporation, offering the star a maximum of $1.35 billion (£1.12 billion) in compensation consisting of 39 percent cash and 61 percent stock.
Although Reynolds might view this as an opportunity to set aside some additional funds for his expanding family, Wrexham supporters have no doubt about what they would do with the billion-pound proceeds.
Following the news of Reynolds' recent windfall, a deluge of football enthusiasts has taken to Twitter, imploring the actor to purchase Erling Braut Haaland, a Norwegian professional football player.
Playing as a striker for the Premier League club Manchester City and the Norway national team, Haaland is widely recognized as one of the top players in the world.
Recognized for his speed, strength, and scoring prowess inside the penalty area, it's not surprising why Wrexham supporters have been so insistent.
Concise and impactful, many simply echoed: "Haaland to Wrexham!"
An additional user on Twitter composed: "Sweet. Hopefully, Wrexham will buy Haaland next window."
Going a step beyond, a third individual included: "Bodes well for Wrexham's chances of signing Haaland and Mbappe next year."
That would be a dream team, without a doubt.
Although Reynolds has yet to respond to these requests, it's reasonable to suggest that even the mere possibility of Haaland joining the Dragons, while improbable, is enough to excite any football aficionado.
Certainly, there is excitement to be had in the future.
