Wrexham have been handed a huge boost in signing Harry Kane, as well as a new stadium being built, after their odds were dramatically slashed following the sale of one of Ryan Reynolds' billion-dollar companies. In what can only be compared to that of a Hollywood script, the National League leaders boast Reynolds and co-owner Rob McElhenney as owners - and they certainly have a pretty penny behind them.
Back in November 2020, Deadpool star Reynolds teamed with McElhenney - famed for creating and starring in It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia - to purchase Wrexham for £2.25m ($2.76m). The duo have since become symbols of Welsh football around the world following the publicity and exposure their platforms have bought to the club and its city.
They enjoyed success in the form of the Welcome to Wrexham documentary on Disney+ - but Reynolds has now received a spectacular windfall. On Thursday, he cut his first billion-dollar deal after selling wireless firm Mint Mobile to telecoms giant T-Mobile for £1.12bn ($1.35bn)
The 46-year-old is personally expected to receive a nine-figure payday, although the exact amount is unclear and unconfirmed.
With his newly-found wealth in mind - believed to take his net worth up to £245m ($300m) - bookmakers have created a number of Wrexham-related odds, with some of them smashed in the betting odds since the sale.
Following rumours of a big-money transfer swoop for Cheltenham Town frontman Alfie May and the signing of retired goalkeeper Ben Foster, Reynolds could certainly afford Players of a much higher value.
Intriguingly, one bookie has priced Wrexham up at odds of 28/1 to sign Tottenham Hotspur forward Kane.
The wantaway striker recently celebrated becoming England's highest-ever goal scorer, after he scored his 54th goal in the opening qualifier against Italy for Euro 2024 this week.
Red Dragons fans shouldn't hold their breath, though, as the National League outfit currently sit four leagues below England's top flight, with Kane incredibly unlikely to drop down the leagues.
The probability of a new stadium in the works has also been given a huge boost, with odds of 33/1 being thrown around.
