While insisting he wouldn't enter Premiership ownership without the introduction of a salary cap, American billionaire Robert Kraft has left the door open to future club ownership.
Kraft admitted yesterday he came close to buying out Liverpool before George Gillett and Tom Hicks took over.
And he added: "I would be interested in other teams in the Premier League, but Liverpool was a unique franchise, with a great following.
"The coach of my Major League Soccer team is Stevie Nicol, who played up there. We sort of have stuff sent to us all the time, but I think, deep down, until there's some sort of salary cap structure, I'm not sure it's a great business deal."
