Robert Kraft reportedly wants to buy part of Spanish soccer team

Robert Kraft is already in the soccer business by owning the New England Revolution and apparently he wants to add another team to his name.

According to multiple reports, Kraft is interested in a 40-percent stake in Spanish soccer club Sevilla FC. Sevilla plays in La Liga, Spain’s first division. Last season, Sevilla finished seventh overall, which included a runner-up finish in the domestic knockout tournament, called the Copa del Rey.

This isn't the first time Kraft has been linked to another soccer team as in 2005 he was said to have been interested in Liverpool FC.

If the deal does go through, it would obviously be very similar to how John Henry owns both the Red Sox and Liverpool FC -- separate entities.

[UPDATE FRIDAY 12:30 p.m.]: Apparently, this was all a fake rumor. Here's the story.
