Liverpool takeover identified after FSG expect to sell more $1bn than Chelsea
After making an unsuccessful bid to outbid Todd Boehly for Chelsea, the CBS Sports reporter said the group is a “genuine suitor.”
It should be noted that while a takeover is not definitely likely, since earlier reports suggested that soliciting third-party investment was preferable, the likelihood of one is increasing.
With a net worth of approximately $3bn, the HBSE will require assistance in removing the Reds from the hands of John W. Henry and Co., especially given that the club could be sold for more than $3 billion.
It remains to be seen whether this will cast doubt on Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment’s suitability as the next potential owner of Liverpool.
Regardless of who enters the race, hopefully that the present owners will carefully consider each proposal to see which one can really propel Liverpool.
Liverpool and FSG proved right in not following Chelsea lead after ‘epic collapse’
Liverpool met with crypto companies early on in the process while talking about front-of-shirt partners.
Liverpool wasn’t short of interest when they were looking into front-of-shirt sponsorship opportunities earlier this year.
Back in July, the Reds and Standard Chartered, the financial powerhouse that had been the Reds’ main front-of-shirt sponsor since the summer of 2010, agreed to a four-year extension of their present relationship.
The deal, which is thought to be worth more than £50 million per year to the Reds, begins in the 2023/24 season and runs until the end of the 2026/27 season, bringing the partnership’s total length to 17 years.
Standard Chartered’s previous contract was set to expire at the end of this season, and with the front of Liverpool shirts being one of the most sought after sponsorship spaces in world sport, the Reds opened themselves up to interest from other companies as well as Standard Chartered in order to determine the market value.
