Saudi Arabian investor would ‘definitely support’ Liverpool takeover as he backs Cristiano Ronaldo move amid serious transfer claims made
Liverpool Fc takeover latest as Saudi Arabian investors speak out on possible purchase and the Reds are laughably suggested as an option for Cristiano Ronaldo.
The sporting director Julian Ward and the director of research Ian Graham will both leave Anfield at the end of the current season, it has been announced.
Although Liverpool’s strategy will remain same, Ward’s job is crucial and he only succeeded Michael Edwards in the summer, so the news that he wants a break after six months comes as a surprise.
Graham, on the other hand, has played a significant role in creating Liverpool’s analytics in the background. Despite the absence of two key employees, the plans and systems in place are expected to continue.
Ridiculous Cristiano Ronaldo claim
As Cristiano Ronaldo searches for a new club after leaving Manchester United, the Spanish outlet AS has speculated that Liverpool could be an alternative. They go so far as to say that Ronaldo would “welcome” the change.
That story is clearly false, unless they are referring to the Liverpool FC team that plays at Estadio Belvedere in Uruguay. It is a leap to think that any elite, well-run team would recruit Ronaldo and offer him the enormous income that he receives, and Merseyside’s Liverpool are most definitely not going to be considered.
In the summer, Chelsea was suggested as a possible destination for him, but it appears unlikely that Graham Potter would want him in his team after
Saudi investment suggested for Liverpool
The government of Saudi Arabia, according to its minister of sports, will “certainly support” private sector offers for Liverpool and Manchester United, two Premier League teams that are up for sale.
Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Faisal told the BBC that there is a lot of “interest and appetite” for the Anfield and Old Trafford clubs and that Newcastle United already has Saudi money.
“From the private sector, I can’t speak on their behalf, but there is a lot of interest and appetite and there’s a lot of passion about football,” he said.
“It’s the most-watched league in Saudi and the region and you have a lot of fans of the Premier League. We will definitely support it if any [Saudi] private sector comes in, because we know that’s going to reflect positively on sports within the kingdom.
“But if there’s an investor willing to do so and the numbers add up, why not?”
