Millionaire rapper wants to purchase Selhurst Park side for some reason.
P Diddy is considering buying the bankrupt football club Crystal Palace and plans to mastermind their return to the Premier league.
The US rap mogul has been in talks over the struggling London team, who face relegation from the Coca-Cola Championship this summer after having ten points docked for going into administration.
So will P Diddy become the latest foreign millionaire to take control of an English team?
A source confirmed talks had already taken place. “Diddy was in London meeting football fixers a couple of weeks ago.
“The finance is in place, he’s just deciding who he thinks he’ll make a bid for. Portsmouth were mentioned but he thought Palace were a better idea.
“He could cover their debt and bankroll a return to the Premier League. He liked the name as well,” (Yahoo)
What does a man buy when he has everything else? Yes that’s right a financially stricken Championship football club. You have to wonder the wisdom all round in this potential ownership deal. Ask yourselves “what does the rapper and occasional actor know about a) football and b) Selhurst Park” but then I guess anyone’s money will be gladly accepted and the south London side apparently desperately needs a cash injection.
One can only hope that the bling merchant’s interest in the club isn’t down solely to the fact that the side’s name contains a precious stone in its title?
