Before the Reds take on Man City in the 4th round of the Carabao Cup, takeover news surfaces yet again for Liverpool FC.
Liverpool FC takeover news is reported with Man United and “Far East” accusations
After arguably the best World Cup as per football pundits it is time to return back in the domestic league world. Ibrahima Konate nearly missed winning his first World Cup title after a thrilling World Cup run. However, Liverpool will be back on the field on Thursday when they take on Manchester City in the Carabao Cup. Even though there hasn’t been any club football, Merseyside is still buzzing with news and rumors about the January transfer window and the club’s ongoing sale.
Since it was announced that Fenway Sports Group was looking to sell Liverpool FC after 12 years in charge. More than a month has passed, and a plethora of international brands and groups have been associated with the team. According to rumors, FSG will ask the buyer for roughly £3.4 billion, and possible suitors from the US, Dubai, and Saudi Arabia are all claimed to be interested in taking over Anfield.
Latest on the takeover news
According to Stefan Szymanski, a football financial specialist, Liverpool appears more and more likely to be sold to investors in the Middle East. It is reported by Liverpool Echo. Few parties have expressed interest in FSG because to its £3.4 billion price tag. And Szymanski has stated that US investors may “find it tougher to compete at the top level” if the rate of return declines with growing prices.
Someone from the Far East is the alternative. It would undoubtedly perform well in that region of the world since Liverpool is such a household brand in East Asia and there are millionaire Indonesians, Malaysians, and Singaporeans. It would seem sensible to assume that there would be high interest.
David Dein, a former vice-chairman of Arsenal and the FA, has asserted that the club’s sale may be related to the demise of the European Super League. Prior to withdrawing, FSG faced criticism from their own supporters. It is for their significant involvement in the campaign for the contentious planned event.
