Malcolm Glazer was the first American businessman to stick his nose in Premier League business.

Glazer, at the time owned the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and fresh off a Super Bowl win in January of 2003, Glazer turned his sights across the ocean to, what was for the majority of his ownership, the most valuable sports franchise in the world, Manchester United.

Glazer was a forerunner to American sports owners solidifying their international holdings by purchasing teams, particularly in English soccer, and could even be viewed as the man who created the genesis for Russian-billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov to purchase the Brooklyn Nets. 

His legacy will be headlined by championships on both sides of the Atlantic ocean, but also for the influx of American owners in the Premier League, from the NFL and other U.S. Sports. 

Here's a look at some of the Americans who have taken their money overseas.
