The club has indeed made a profit of £756,000 in the latest accounts, however, Wrexham has a long way from the riches of the premier league, and hence these celebs might have to wait years before they can actually make some good profile out of the deal.
This buy might not be for the money for Ryan Reynolds, as he made $ 71.5 Million this year from acting work and another $ 610 million from selling his Aviation Gin Brand in Aug. the deal might be for making something bigger than money.
