Rihanna - Rihanna wants to buy UK soccer club

Rihanna wants to buy a UK soccer club.

The 26-year-old singer is said to be ''really serious'' about setting up a sports academy in her native Barbados and then becoming a chairwoman or owner for a team in England, so much so she has been getting some advice from her friend, Chelsea player Didier Drogba.

A source close to the Bajan beauty said: ''At first we thought Rihanna's desire to be involved with soccer on a business level would soon blow over.

''We figured she was still on a high from the World Cup. But now it's becoming clear she really is serious.

''She's talking about setting up a football academy in her native Barbados. Then her big dream is to be involved with a UK club.''

While Rihanna has previously confessed to being a Liverpool fan, it is also thought the 'S&M' hitmaker could consider taking over a club in Los Angeles.

The source added to the Daily Star newspaper: ''Britain is like a second home to her, although she's also hinted she may do something with an LA team.''

Rihanna was a big fan of the recent World Cup in Brazil over the summer and posted several pictures on Instagram page of herself supporting the home nation until they were ruthlessly dumped out of the competition 7-1 by Germany.

The star then went on to support Germany in the final, which they won by overcoming Argentina with an extra-time winner from Mario Gotze.

Rihanna is not the only big name star who has been interested in taking over a UK team as rapper Snoop Dogg previously admitted he was thinking about investing in Scottish champions Glasgow Celtic and P. Diddy was said to be in talks to buy Crystal Palace in 2010 because he likes their name.

What's more, Hollywood legend Tom Hanks is a big fan of English heavyweights Aston Villa, also because he is a fan of their moniker, and Sylvester Stallone has been to watch Everton on several occasions.
