Diddy Buying In On Historic European Soccer Team

- By Bossip Staff

Diddy is a business man, that much we can’t deny. Puffy may now be trying to purchase a football club out of Europe… for the name:

The rapper has expressed an interest in London team Crystal Palace, which has been struggling with financial difficulties. club recently went into administration, which could see it demoted into a lower sports division as British soccer teams which go bankrupt are docked points.

Diddy’s representative has confirmed he wants to invest in a UK club, although he has also been linked to Portsmouth, in south England, which is desperately in need of a backer.

“Diddy was in London meeting football fixers a couple of weeks ago. The finance is in place, he’s just deciding who he thinks he’ll make a bid for. Portsmouth were mentioned but he thought Palace were a better idea,” a source said. “He could cover their debt. He liked the name as well.”

The 40-year-old, real name Sean Combs, is said to be worth around £360 million. He is well known for flashing his cash, recently traveling to Britain from France to throw a £500,000 party to celebrate the release of his new album Last Train to Paris.

He is known to be a fan of expensive Cristal champagne, which costs over £100 a bottle.

Crystal Palace Football Club has been around since 1905. We don’t know if it a smart investment, but it isn’t very hard for things to go awry with English Football.

    Depends on how much it costs him. May be a smart move since it’s the most lucrative sports worldwide, next to auto racing.

    Is this dude serious? Crystal Palace is probably one of the worst clubs he could even think of buying. Then again maybe with his help they could get a little further, but he best know that he’s gonna have to buy some new players too.

    Arab billionaire Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan took control of the Manchester city club last year from former Thailand Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra and has transformed them into title contenders with a series of big money signings including Robinho, Carlos Tevez, Gareth Barry and Emmanuel Adebayor. Diddy has no chance in that..

    ***********************************
    Before you start calling names know what the f**k you are talking about. #1 I am too old to be anybody’s chickenhead. I have probably forgotten more than you know. #2 Great Britain is not a continent, there are only 7 continents
    and it is a part of the European continent. So what if I misspoke about it being on instead of in the continent of Europe. Know YOUR facts before you challenge someone. Don’t play with me because I can hold my own with the best of them.

    Diddy is a financial genius.

    This is what happens when you have a felony. You throw a chance of entering international boarders, thus being left culturally naive, hence the blind ignorant statements. It could also be a reflection of Geography teacher at this persons school.

    I am part of the EU …………bring on partying in IBIZA, BABY
