Italian businessman, football club owner, and musician, Massimo Cellino has an estimated net worth of £750 million ($1.1 billion). He is the former owner of Cagliari Calcio and current majority owner of Leeds United. The controversial Italian bought 75% of the Championship crisis club Leeds United for £30 million. After purchasing the English club, Cellino has targeted Leeds United return to the Premier League by 2016. With debts of nearly £20 million and losses of £1 million every month Cellino’s aim is optimistic, but having established the provincial club of Cagliari in Serie A, if anyone were to return Leeds to the Premier League you would have to back Cellino to deliver. Massimo Cellino won his appeal against the Football League’s decision to block his takeover of Leeds United. The Italian now owns the controlling share of the Yorkshire-based football club which will ease the financial worries that have plagued the club since the turn of the year. Arrested on February 2013 for attempted fraud, Cellino has two prior criminal records in Italy. A father of three, he own properties in Leeds and Miami, Florida. An excellent guitar player, Cellino is part of the cover band Maurillos, and also played with The Pigeon Detectives.
