Prokhorov Expanding Sports Holdings in Russia?

While pursuing the Nets, Mikhail Prokhorov may be getting ready to buy another sports team: Russia's CSKA Moscow soccer team. The report, buried in a story on the state of Russian soccer, says he's the team's likely buyer. Prokhorov owned 25% of CSKA Moscow's basketball team, a separate entity, until 2008. CSKA is the Russian acronym for the Red Army which controlled both in the Soviet era.
