Pop princess and global starlet Rihanna is rumoured to be considering putting forward a bizarre bid to purchase a percentage of Liverpool FC, according to Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo
The singer was a regular at World Cup games this year, and celebrated with the German squad after they lifted the trophy.
That experience has seemingly inspired the Talk That Talk vocalist to get involved in the sport and she reportedly wants to own a club, with Liverpool her preferred choice.
Rihanna was rumoured last week to be setting up a soccer school in her native country of Barbados after her World Cup experience, to aid her motherland's dream of competing in their first major tournament.
The Reds are currently owned by Fenway Sports Group, an American based company who also own NBL outfit Boston Red Soxs. Although they would likely not sell the club to the Grammy award winning singer, the 26-year-old could likely purchase a small percentage in shares.
Lebron James, arguably the greatest basketball player currently in the NBA owns a small portion of the Reds and has attended several matches at Anfield in the past.
If Rihanna did own a small stakes in the club, it could boost fans across the globe. 'RiRi' is a star in every continent on the planet and with her inking herself a deal to own some of the club could attract people's support towards the Merseyside giants.
We've seen how much football has ballooned in America, with Liverpool holding their pre-season preparation in the country. With Rihanna having such a massive influence in the country, she could certainly attract fans to the club, much like James has done for the five time European Cup champions.
