Liverpool owners categorically deny \unfounded\ $2bn takeover reports

FSG respond to unfounded speculation Liverpool are up for sale

Report in leading American newspaper suggests Fenway Sports Group would allow Reds to change hands for £1.5bn

News Corp is a network of leading companies in the worlds of diversified media, news, education, and information services.

According to the American newspaper, FSGs principal owner is holding talks privately over selling up

According to the New York Post, the American has “quietly signalled” hes willing to hand over control if he receives an offer upwards of $2billion (£1.5bn).

Henry, whose company Fenway Sports Group bought Liverpool for $477million (£366m) in 2010, is claimed to be running a passive sales process”.

In August this year, the Daily Mail reported that a cousin of Manchester City owner Sheik Mansour had failed in a stunning £2billion bid to buy Liverpool, which would have constituted the most expensive takeover in the history of football.

Following the Mail’s report, FSG insisted they had no plans to relinquish ownership of the Reds anytime soon.

A statement from FSG in August read: “FSG have been clear and consistent: the club is not for sale.

Despite their triumph, the Red Sox lost money in 2018, according to the Post, although there is nothing to suggest a direct connection between selling Liverpool and funding the baseball team’s losses.

A League Cup triumph in 2012 is the only trophy Liverpool have won since FSGs takeover, but the club as a whole has made impressive progress in recent years, with Jurgen Klopp proving a popular appointment as manager following his arrival in 2015.

The 2015/16 season saw Liverpool lose the League Cup and Europa League finals to Manchester City and Sevilla respectively and they reached the Champions League final in 2018.

This season they have yet to taste defeat in 11 Premier League games and are sitting second in their Champions League group.
