Report: Two billionaires now want to buy Liverpool together, they already own three teams
Liverpool are now one of the latest Premier League football club reportedly up for sale.
After news broke yesterday that Manchester United is also up for sale, the Reds will be trying to court suitors quickly.
Fenway Sports Group have owner Liverpool for the past 12 years and delivered a good level of success.
Under Jurgen Klopp, the Reds finally won their first Premier League trophy.
They also added a sixth Champions League trophy to their impressive cabinet in 2019.
However, the group now appear to be ready to sell the club, with Goldman Sachs valuing Liverpool at £3.5bn.
Liverpool Echo now believe that HBSE want to buy the club, a firm owned by billionaires Josh Harris and David Blitzer.
HBSE are similar to Fenway in that they also own American sports franchises.
Harris and Blitzer already have majority stakes in NBA, NHL and MLS franchises.
They could now add Liverpool to that impressive list.
HBSE want to buy Liverpool
The pair should be well versed in Premier League affairs already.
They already own an 18% share in Crystal Palace, which would likely have to be sold if they took over Liverpool.
Blitzer is part of an investment group that owns stakes in a number of European clubs.
This includes Danish side Brondby and Bundesliga team FC Augsburg.
If Chelsea’s recent transfer dealing are anything to go by, fresh US investment could see Liverpool given plenty of funds in the transfer market.
Liverpool have been closely linked with Jude Bellingham for some time now.
Bellingham’s previously been valued at £100m, and that could increase further as he impresses at the World Cup.
If HBSE want to buy Liverpool and make an immediate impression, they could sanction a move for Bellingham.
It’s unlikely to be a straightforward affair buying one of the world’s biggest football clubs.
Klopp will hope speculation off the field doesn’t have an impact on the pitch this season.
