Los Angeles, Aug 6 IANS | 5 months ago

Singer Rihanna is reportedly planning to buy a British soccer club.

The 26-year-old is said to be "really serious" about setting up a sports academy in her native Barbados and then becoming the chairwoman or owner of a team in England.

She is said to be getting some advice from her friend and Chelsea football player Didier Drogba, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"At first we thought Rihanna's desire to be involved with soccer on a business level would soon blow over. We figured she was still on a high from the World Cup. But now it's becoming clear she really is serious," said a source.

"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," added the source.

If sources are to be believed, she is also considering taking over a club here.

"Britain is like a second home to her, although she's also hinted she may do something with an LA (Los Angeles) team," said the source.
