Yesterday we reported that Malaysian billionaire Vincent Tan was in town to check out the location of his latest possible investment – a billion euro hotel, apartment, marina and villa complex 27km west of Dubrovnik. It seems that property mogul Tan may leave Croatia with more than he came for.
Dubrovnik’s Mayor Andro Vlahusic has confirmed that Tan has been in discussion with local football club NK Dubrovnik about a possible takeover. The wealthy Malaysian, who is estimated to be worth over 10 billion USD, already has an interest in football clubs and owns new English Premier League club Cardiff City. Daily Jutarnji list reports that Tan is interested in NK Dubrovnik and that he has held discussions with the club’s board and Dubrovnik’s Mayor.
