Is Robert Kraft finally ready to wade into European soccer’s waters?
The New England Patriots and New England Revolution owner might acquire a 40-percent stake in Spanish soccer club Sevilla FC as soon as this week, according to Spanish Radio station COPE. Kraft reportedly has formed a U.S.-based investment company called ‘Sevillistas Unidos 2020,’ which has joined a consortium that intends to take over Sevilla.
Kraft considered buying an English Premier League team, reportedly Liverpool FC, in 2005 but ultimately declined to pursue a purchase because the league has no salary cap.
Sevilla plays in La Liga, Spain’s first division, which also doesn’t have the salary-cost controls common in North American sports leagues.
