FSG, who took over the Liverpool club in 2010, stated that they would be open to receiving bids for the club
Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries, is reportedly considering an offer to buy Liverpool after their present owners, Fenway Sports Group, put the club up for sale (FSG).
The FSG are willing to sell for £4 billion, according to the Mirror, and there is a bigger desire to buy the Merseyside club outright. Ambani, who has a net worth of over £90 billion and is ranked as the eighth richest person in the world by Forbes, has already inquired about joining the club.
FSG, who took over the Liverpool club in 2010, startled the football world earlier this week when they stated that they would be open to hearing offers for the club.
“There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and reports of changes in ownership at EPL teams, and naturally, we are asked about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool,” FSG said in a statement.
“FSG has received numerous expressions of interest from outside parties requesting to become shareholders in Liverpool. FSG has previously stated that “we would consider new shareholders under the correct terms and conditions if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.”
However, this isn’t the first time Mukesh Ambani has expressed interest in purchasing Liverpool. Reliance Industries wanted to offer for a 51% share in Liverpool in 2010 with Subroto Roy, head of Sahara Group. However, then-Liverpool chief executive Christain Purslow dismissed the rumors.
