FSG looking for ‘at least £3 billion’ from Liverpool sale

Fenway Sports Group are looking for an offer in excess of £3 billion from the sale of Liverpool.

Liverpool’s owners have placed the club up for sale and released a statement in which the group said proposals would be considered if in the best interests of the club. FSG have owned Liverpool since 2010, when the Americans – who also own MLB’s Boston Red Sox – purchased the Premier League side from George Gillett Jr. and Tom Hicks.

FSG have overseen a period of success under Jurgen Klopp, with the Reds having won a host of major honours including the Champions League and a first Premier League title in three decades. The group have also redeveloped the infrastructure of the club with a move to the AXA Training Centre in Kirkby and an expansion of Anfield.

FSG are now prepared to move on however, and the Times are reporting that the owners are seeking a proposal in excess of £3 billion. That figure would represent a huge profit for FSG on their initial investment, having purchased the Reds for just £300m.

Liverpool were valued at £3.89 billion by Forbes in May, while Chelsea were sold earlier this year for £2.5 billion, alongside a guarantee of a further £1.75 billion being invested in the club.

Proposals are expected from the Far East and Middle East, though an American owner is believed to be the likeliest outcome.

The Ricketts family, who own MLB’s Chicago Cubs and have expressed past interest in Tottenham and Chelsea, have been linked.
