Actor Ryan Reynolds Interested In Buying National League Side Wrexham


In news that continues to bring utter absurdity in 2020, actor Ryan Reynolds is one of two people interested in buying Welsh football club Wrexham.

The National League side posted a statement this evening to confirm that the Canadian, best known for his leading role in Marvel's R-rated superhero film Deadpool, is keen on investing.

Reynolds, 43, recently sold his gin company to Diageo for a reported $610 million, while he is also a director at Match Group, who oversees a whole host of dating websites including Tinder and Hinge.

The other individual in question is none other than Rob McElhenney, who created and starred in the popular sitcom It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

Talks are ongoing and the next step is for the pair to "put forward their vision for Wrexham AFC and proposal for members to vote on at a second Special General Meeting", the club says.

A statement on the club's official website read: "The Wrexham Supporters Trust Board would like to thank all members who took part in the Special General Meeting yesterday (Tuesday, September 22) and took the time to vote.

"As confirmed this morning, 97.5% of voters (1,223 members) voted in favour of the Resolution.

"As a result, talks with the proposed bidders will now continue and we are in a position to confirm the two people interested in investing in Wrexham AFC.

"Rob McElhenney is an American actor, director, producer, and screenwriter, best known as the creator of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

"Ryan Reynolds is an award-winning Canadian actor, writer, producer, and business entrepreneur whose credits include Marvel's Deadpool.

"In due course, Mr. McElhenney and Mr. Reynolds will put forward their vision for Wrexham AFC and proposal for members to vote on at a second Special General Meeting."

The North Wales outfit have been 100 percent fan run but could soon be owned by a Golden Globe nominee with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Just imagine Reynolds and Blake Lively rocking up at the Racecourse Ground and having a pint of Pilsner with Bootlegger.
