Rihanna wants to buy Liverpool Football Club

We were all well aware of Rihanna’s love for the beautiful game during the World Cup with her overload of tweets and instagram pictures throughout the games, but we never thought the prospect of her buying a football club was serious.

RiRi is ready to invest in a Premier League club with the Reds her team of choice, a source told the Daily Star.

The singer has been advised to buy Liverpool by her close friend and Chelsea star Didier Drogba.

While it seems highly unlikely Liverpool's current owners – the Fenway Sports Group – would sell the world famous team, the prospect of Rihanna sharing a seat in the directors' box with her crew is worth every penney.

Could the singers hit singles Umbrella or We Found Love replace the world famous You’ll Never Walk Alone?

The Caribbean beauty is also keen to start her own footballing academy in Barbados.

"At first we thought Rihanna's desire to be involved with soccer on a business level would soon blow over," a source close told the Daily Star.

"We figured she was still on a high from the World Cup.

"But now it's becoming clear she really is serious. She's talking about setting up a football academy in her native barbados.

"Then her big dream is to be involved with a UK club."

After Germany's win over Argentina in the World Cup final Rihanna was pictured holding the trophy and tweeting her excitement.

We can't wait to hear what fans have to say about this?
