Ghana Black Stars midfielder Thomas Partey has joined three other investors to purchase Alcobendas, a third division Spanish club.
According to the report, the Atlectico Madrid midfielder has bought the club to help them get promoted.
The 26-year-old, who is regarded as one of the finest footballers in the world, joined three of his Spanish advisers to seal the complete takeover of the club based in the capital Madrid.
"I have joined three of the my advisers who are also my good friends for us to takeover Alcobendas Sport to make it one of the great clubs in Spain," Partey stated.
"It is an ambitious project but we have put together our plans of making it a success through a gradual process of growing Alcobendas Sport from the ground up," he added.
To carry out the ambitious mission, Partey and his colleagues have recruited the highly experienced and respected coach Javi Banos, the midfielder's first coach at Atletico, who convinced the Spanish La Liga side to sign the Ghanaian as a youngster.
By this move Partey, an unassuming but hugely talented player, looks to have already started planning for his post-playing career as he has observed several African footballers in Europe struggling because of their inability to plan when they retire from playing.
Alcobendas Sport is a Spanish football club based in Alcobendas, in the autonomous community of Madrid.
Founded in 1995, it plays in Tercera División – Group 7, holding home games at Polideportivo Luis Aragonés, which has a capacity of 3,000 spectators.
The club was founded as Soto de la Moraleja, Alcobendas first reached the fourth division in 2006–07, finishing in fourteenth position.
