Texans star J.J. Watt's is interested in buying Utah Soccer Holdings.
According to the Sports Business Daily’s Mark J. Burns, Watt and his camp are in the early exploratory process of assessing what a possible involvement might look like.
Owner Dell Loy Hansen is in the process of selling the company that owns NWSL's Utah Royals FC, MLS's Real Salt Lake and USL's Real Monarchs.
The Athletic and SB Nation both reported about the toxic culture that permeated through Hansen's company in a series of stories.
If Watt does purchase the holdings, he would join a number of active professional athletes who have ownership stakes in American soccer teams
