The talks eventually fell through, but Combs is still eager to buy his own soccer club if the business deal is profitable.
He tells the BBC, "There was somebody that had looked at it but the business of it (Crystal Palace) just wasn't the right business move for me at the time.
"I'm always looking into different business ventures and it's definitely one of my dreams one day to be a part of a sports franchise, especially a football (soccer) team.
"If the right situation comes my way and it's appealing and we can make the right splash and most importantly build the right team and win... I'm into winning and if it's the right situation then I'm open to it."
