Liverpool transfer news: Britain’s richest man rules out buying Liverpool

[ad_1]

FSG put club up for sale 

Britain’s richest Man, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, has officially ruled himself out of buying Liverpool because he no longer sees value in buying a top Premier League side, after the club was reportedly put up for sale by their current owners. The Anfield side are currently owned by Fenway Sports Group, who bought the club in October 2010 for a reported €350 million and have built Liverpool up to the fourth most valuable squad in European football.

On Monday, the Athletic reported that FSG had put the club up for sale and were producing full sales presentations for interested parties. The publication claimed that while the owners had looked into opportunities to sell the club in the past and decided against them, they were now inviting offers from potential bidders. However, it seems unlikely that they’ll be receiving one from one British billionaire in particular anytime soon. 

In a statement from the businessman’s petrochemicals company Ineos, the potential bidder made it perfectly clear that after a failed bid for Chelsea in the summer and consistent links to Manchester United, Ratcliffe would not be making an offer for Liverpool. “Our position has developed since the summer and we are now focusing our efforts in Nice and raising our ambitions for the club to make them into a top tier club in France to compete with PSG,” said a spokesman to the Daily Telegraph. “This would represent much better value for our investment than buying one of the top tier Premier League clubs.”

Ineos have invested in Formula1 and cycling in the past, along with the aforementioned ownership of Ligue 1 side Nice, as well as Swiss football club Lausanne. However, as a celebrated Man Utd fan, it was perhaps always something of a long shot to consider Ratcliffe as a serious contender to buy Liverpool. However, the British billionaire isn’t the only party linked with a move for the Anfield club.

Ratcliffe rules out offer – so who will buy Liverpool

According to reports in the Middle East, investors in Dubai are weighing up a move for Liverpool for a reported €5b. After the club told the Athletic that FSG “would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club”, the prospects of investment from the Gulf states seems to be gathering steam. According to publication Arabian Business, Dubai International Capital (DIC) are reportedly eyeing up a move for the club, following a failed €360m offer for Liverpool in 2007. 

Elsewhere, far less serious suggestions have come from none other than mixed martial arts athlete Conor McGregor, who took to social media to declare his interest in the club. When asked by a follower if he would buy the Anfield side, McGregor claimed that he “would love it” and has since requested more information about the potential sale. However, with a reported net worth below €200m, it seems highly unlikely that the athlete could make a serious offer for the club.
