Liverpool for sale
Liverpool are thought to be on the market.
That’s according to American publication, the New York Post.
They note that while a sale isn’t a pressing matter, Fenway Sports Group would be willing to listen to offers north of $2 billion for the club.
FSG also own the Boston Red Sox, who have been making losses.
The Red Sox won the World Series, but have the highest payroll in baseball, and were subject to a ‘luxury tax’ of $20 million.
Selling Liverpool could be a way to recoup some money for FSG.
Back in August, FSG denied Liverpool was for sale. However, now, it seems things have changed and the New York Post claim a ‘passive sales process’ is in the offing.
Back in 2010, John Henry of course purchased Liverpool for $477 million.
Progress under FSG
Under FSG, there were some initial issues, but the owners have backed Jurgen Klopp to the hilt.
During the summer, Liverpool were able to bring in key players.

FSG backed Klopp and provided funds to make sure the Reds got what they needed.
Now, they’re looking at making a push for the title.
It’s certainly one of the most complete teams Liverpool have seen in years.
Of course, if trophies don’t eventually come, then serious questions will be asked by the owners.
