The “Fenway Sports” group, which owns the largest stake in Liverpool, has invited investors to submit offers to buy the club, according to the website.The Athletic“, Monday.
After 12 years of the group’s supervision of the club, the owners have confirmed that they are ready to consider a third party investment.
In statements to The Athletic, the club’s owner group said: “Many have expressed an interest in becoming shareholders in Liverpool,” adding that it will now look into the matter “if it is in the interest of the club.”
The group sold an 11 percent stake in the company, last year, for 655 million pounds ($750 million) to Red Bird Capital Partners, which recently bought AC Milan for $1.2 billion.
According to the report, the group has contracted with companies in order to obtain presentations for the potential sale.
The group, which also owns baseball team Boston Red Sox and hockey team Pittsburgh Penguins, bought Liverpool in 2010.
Over the past decade, the group has funded a new Liverpool training ground, along with massive renovations at Anfield, which included a major stadium at a cost of £110m.
Under the leadership of “Fenway Sports”, Liverpool reached the final of the largest European competition “Champions of Europe” three times, and won the title in 2019, and also won the Club World Cup in the same year.
Liverpool won the long-awaited Premier League title in 2020, and won the FA Cup last season.
