In one of the most shocking stories of the day, Liverpool FC has been put up for sale.
The Athletic report that Fenway Sports Group (FSG) has put Liverpool up for sale and a full sales presentation has been produced for interested parties.
FSG has looked at opportunities to sell in the past but decided against moving forward with them. It is unclear whether or not a deal will eventually be done, but FSG is inviting offers. Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have been retained to assist with the process.
A statement from FSG sent to The Athletic read: “There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool.
“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool. FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club.
“FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.”
FSG took over Liverpool in October 2010, when it bought the club from George Gillett Jr. and Tom Hicks.
The Reds have won one league title, one Champions League and one FA Cup in that time.
