Is Alex Rodriguez following in the footsteps of his former teammate Derek Jeter and looking to become the owner of a baseball team?
According to Variety, the former Yankees champ along with his pop superstar fiancée, Jennifer Lopez, are interested in purchasing the New York Mets.
The celebrity couple has reportedly hired JP Morgan Chase’s co-head of North American media investment banking to help secure the funding. Forbes estimates the team to be worth around $2.4 billion.
A-Rod hinted to Jimmy Fallon last month, “If the opportunity came up [to buy the Mets], I would certainly look at it.”
