Liverpoolis for sale. That’s right, one of the most powerful soccer clubs in the world and also one of the most valuable, according to Forbes, could change ownership before the end of the calendar year.
Fenway Sports Group, the consortium that currently owns ‘The Reds’, is ready to present its sales proposals to potential buyers.
Since FSG’s arrival at the club in 2010, there has never been a connection with the fans.
In fact, the group saw the purchase of the team as a business opportunity, knowing that at some point they could give up their position, if the ‘right’ amount of money came knocking on their door.
The Athletic published an exclusive statement by the group which announced the news.
FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become Liverpool shareholders.
FSG has previously said that under the right terms and conditions, we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.
In 2010, the group bought Liverpool for a reported 344.1 million dollars, a club that had not won the Premier League in the modern era since it was renamed in the early 90s.
With the arrival of Jurgen Klopp to the Anfield dugout, that changed.
‘The Reds’ have since won the Champions League in the 2018-2019 season, the FA Cup in the 2021-2022 season, the League Cup, also last season, the FIFA Club World Cup in 2019, the Community Shield this year, and the coveted Premier League in the 2019-2020 campaign.
Fans want Jake Paul
On Twitter, many of the Merseyside club’s supporters have joined in petitioning for boxer and YouTuber Jake Paul to make a bid to buy the club.
Paul has become a Liverpool supporter, repeatedly posting on his socials with his opinions about the team’s matches and, above all, talking about his favorite player, Mohamed Salah.
One of the possible stumbling blocks that the 25-year-old would face if he wished to make an offer for The Reds would be that his fortune is estimated at 38 million dollars.
But Liverpool is currently valued at much more than FSG paid at the time, according to Forbes, at some 4.45 billion dollars.
So, Paul‘s supporters are suggesting that he join forces with other individuals to form a consortium strong enough to take over the team.
