TP Mazembe's Moise Katumbi eyeing a stake in Belgium's Anderlecht

TP Mazembe president Moise Katumbi is reportedly interested in investing in Belgian side Anderlecht, Belgian media reports.

Reports about his plans to buy a stake in the top Belgian side first appeared in a Congolese news website politico.cd but now a Belgian journalist has also written about it. 

“A  little scoop for the Anderlecht supporters: There has been a lot of talk about Moïse Katumbi. He is the president of TP Mazembe, one of the biggest African clubs. He is in Anderlecht and might be considering pumping more into the club," Belgian's RTBF website wrote.

Katumbi has been the president of the Lubumbashi-based TP Mazembe since 1997. Under his leadership, the team has won the CAF Champions League title five times, including 2009, 2010, and 2015, and became the first African team to play in the FIFA Club World Cup finals in 2010.

The Congolese businessman was elected to the FIFA strategic commission. He has also served on the CAF marketing committee since 2009.

However, the Jupiler Pro League has not commented on this speculation.
