Billionaire Mukesh Ambani gives a one-word statement on Liverpool takeover
A representative for Mukesh Ambani has said that any rumors linking him to the purchase of Liverpool are “false.” Ambani is considering buying Res, according to a weekend story in The Mirror, after FSG placed the team up for sale.
Ambani founded the Indian Super League, football division. And he is now the owner of the cricket side Mumbai Indians in the Indian Premier League. Reliance Industries, which has holdings in petrochemicals, oil and gas, telecom, and retail, is where Ambani built his $90 billion fortune.
However, a spokeswoman for Reliance reportedly said that Ambani’s interest is “false,” according to the Indian news site ABP Live.
The Future of Liverpool
The Ricketts family, the US owners of the Chicago Cubs baseball club who had participated in the bidding process for Chelsea earlier this year, as well as British billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe, the creator of INEOS and owner of OGC Nice, have withdrawn from the competition.
The Los Angeles Clippers NBA team is owned by former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer; the Philadelphia 76ers NBA club and a portion of Crystal Palace are owned by Harris Blitzer Sports and Entertainment, and the Boston Celtics and Atalanta owner Stephen Pagliuca have all been referenced. Moreover, there are hints also coming from the Middle East.
FSG maintains that they are seeking investment. And new finance into the club and has not expressly indicated that Liverpool are for sale.
Major US banks Morgan Stanley and Goldman Sachs were brought in to manage the process at first. However, it has since been expanded to include those interested in a full takeover of the club. John Henry’s company has been owned since 2010 and its value has increased by more than 1,000% from its original £300 million purchase price. It might be possible that Liverpool could meet their new owners in the New Year.
