American billionaire Robert Kraft remains interested in buying a Premier League club after being linked with the purchase of Liverpool back in 2005. 

The New England Patriots and New England Revolution owner said he is “still intrigued” by the notion but is partly put off by the lack of a salary cap, per BBC Sport:

“I like to win at whatever I do. But without a salary cap I’m concerned that we might be at a disadvantage. 

“We helped found MLS in America. Our league here is starting to really develop, and with our soccer team we’ve gone to the championship game five times in 21 years.

“I’m just concerned in the Premier League that we might not, with all the different ways of operating, we’re not as familiar with all of them.

“Let’s say people from all over the world come in and buy teams and maybe they have different reasons for doing it and managing it. And you have to compete with that and I’m not sure. But I’m still intrigued.”
