Two billionaires who have experience in controlling 3 different clubs have now joined the race to buy Liverpool FC.
FSG gets new prospective billionaires who could buy Liverpool soon
One of the latest entries of the Premier League football teams that are apparently for sale is Liverpool FC. The Reds will strive to find buyers immediately after yesterday’s announcement that Manchester United are also available for purchase. For the previous 12 years, Fenway Sports Group has owned Liverpool and has achieved a decent degree of success.
The Reds ultimately captured their first Premier League trophy under Jurgen Klopp. However, given that Goldman Sachs has valued Liverpool at £3.5 billion, the company now seems prepared to sell the team. The Liverpool Echo now thinks that HBSE, a company run by billionaires Josh Harris and David Blitzer, wants to purchase the Reds club.
A potential buyer?
The 2 Billionaires also own American sports teams, HBSE is akin to Fenway. In the NBA, NHL, and MLS, Harris & Blitzer already own 3 of the clubs. Now Liverpool might be added to that amazing list.
The two should already be knowledgeable about Premier League events. If they acquired Liverpool, they would likely have to sell their existing 18% stake in Crystal Palace. Blitzer is a member of an investment group that holds shares in several European sports teams. This includes the Bundesliga team FC Augsburg and the Danish team Brondby.
If Chelsea‘s recent transfer dealings are any indication, new US investment may provide Liverpool with plenty of transfer dollars. This may give them an advantage over Real Madrid and Manchester City in the race to capture their top transfer target.
Bellingham may be on the table if HBSE wants to acquire Liverpool and make a strong first impression. It’s doubtful that purchasing one of the largest football teams in the world will be an easy process. This season, Klopp will be hoping that rumors from off the field don’t affect the playing surface.
