The owners of Liverpool, Fenway Sports Group have rejected an offer amounting to almost 3 billion pounds, as they do not want to sell the club from Merseyside.
Fenway Sports Group bought Liverpool in 2010 and have led the club to triumph in the Champions League and Premier League in recent years.
But the role of lead owner John W. Henry in leading plans for a European Super League has angered supporters of the English club.
According to the medium The Mirror, The FSG turned down a lucrative offer – which came before it emerged that Liverpool were one of the 12 founding clubs for the breakaway European race that now seems to have failed to materialize.
The offer is said to have come from investors from the Middle East, but even though the Reds lost milionë 120 million in revenue due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the club was not interested in selling.
Recent events, however, could change that, given the backlash over the club’s initial involvement in the European Super League and the way Henry and Tom Werner wanted to join the race.
Earlier this week, banners and flags appeared through the gates of Anfield as fans protested against the formation of the European Super League.
It is believed that any potential Liverpool bidder is likely to be from the Middle East.
The FSG paid milionë 300 million to buy the Reds from compatriots George Gillett and Tom Hicks when the administration was close to ‘failure’ eleven years ago and would receive a very large profit if they decided to sell.
In March 2021, RedBird Capital Partners, a private equity firm in New York, bought a $ 750 million stake in FSG – as NBA star LeBron James increased his stake in the company.
LA Lakers player James is believed to have a stake in Liverpool – the part of which is said to be valued at milionë 37 million at the IOBK. / Telegraphy /
