REVEALED: FSG rethink Liverpool plans; open to selling stake


Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group are now open to “selling a minority stake" in the club.

The Independent journalist Miguel Delaney has reported as much in his Reading the Game newsletter.

The alteration in strategic approach is claimed to be driven by the realisation that the market is currently not as open as first believed, when Chelsea were sold to Todd Boehly last Summer.

In his newsletter, Delaney said: “Liverpool's Fenway Sports Group are now looking at selling a minority stake as much as an outright sale, and the general belief among football industry insiders is that is down to a shift in the market.

“While the price Chelsea went for seemed to suggest it was open season, there is now a bit of trepidation.

“Liverpool have not had that much interest. While the Glazers want to sell United for around €6bn, meanwhile, Jim Ratcliffe's advisors value it at €4bn."
