Jay Z Interested In Buying The Arsenal Gunners?
English soccer teams must be the new hot thing for rap moguls. Diddy looking to invest in the Crystal Palace, an English Premier League team, must have set something off in Jay-Z because now he’s also thinking about investing in the Arsenal Gunners.
Hova says he’s been a Gunners supporter since Thierry Henry left North London as the top goal-scorer of all time and has remained a fan despite Henry’s move to Barcelona of the Spanish La Liga. Already a part owner of the New Jersey Nets, Jay likes the possibility of adding a soccer franchise to his ever-expanding portfolio.
“I don’t know a lot about the business of soccer,” he said, “but in the future if the right opportunity presented itself, then who knows? I am a businessman, and I will always look at an opportunity, and if it feels right, great.”
Ever the generous one, Jay added, “I don’t know if there are any Jay-Z fans in the current team but if there are they would be more than welcome to come to my next concert when I am over in London. They can come and see me do my work, and then I will come and see them do their work.”
Who knows if anything will materialize, but since Jay-Z is worth an estimated $500 million, anything is possiblllllllllle.
