According to the claims that suggest PSG owners could eventually be Liverpool owners, a Times journalist has squashed speculations.
On Monday, a report from United States business news company Bloomberg reported That the Qatar Sports Investment (QSI) group are looking to invest in a Premier League club.
PSG owners on Liverpool’s Investment
The chairman of QSI Nasser Al-Khelaifi is said to have met with the Tottenham counterpart Daniel Levy, while the group had claimed to be “considering” bids for Liverpool and Manchester United.
QSI recently purchased a minority stake in SC Braga in Portugal, are looking to expand its investment in English soil.
But the suggestion that sparks debate, that the Qatari organization could buy Liverpool from FSG have already been denied by the Times’ journalist Martyn Ziegler.
Martyn Ziegler’s report
Ziegler cleared all the speculations on Twitter. He wrote
“Qatar Sports Investment have ambitious plans but understand not looking to invest in Man United or Liverpool at the moment.”
In the report, the Time journalist rightly pointed out the fact that the Qatari investors cannot complete an outright purchase of any other major European club due to, their controlling stake in PSG.
Although UEFA doesn’t restrict any investors from owning multiple clubs no two clubs controlled by the same owner can compete in their competitions- such as the Champions League.
The Current situation
After the declaration of Liverpool’s sale from the FSG, many suitors showed their interest in the Merseyside giants. The PSG owners are one of them. There are rumors of interest from Saudi, Germany, the United States, and also from India.
The Reds are currently out of the top 4 and are desperate to rebuild their European dominance. But injuries and lack of depth in the squad are the reason they are lacking behind. Thus, fresh investments are needed to reach their desired goal.
