Journalist drops massive Liverpool sale update as talks with £373bn sovereign wealth fund revealed

Liverpool have begun takeover talks with the Qatar Investment Authority as Fenway Sports Group (FSG) looks to sell a minority stake in the club according to recent reports.

Despite FSG looking to retain overall control of the Reds the report from Football Insider said that potential investors from the Middle East would prefer to buy a majority stake.

It was reported in November that Liverpool had been put up for sale by their owners but that they remained 'committed to the success of the club both on and off the pitch'.

Preliminary talks have started with the wealth fund which is worth £373billion and has been linked with investment in both the Reds and their Premier League rivals Manchester United.

A recent report in the Mail on Sunday explained how the process to sell United was much further ahead with their owners the Glazers wasting no time in marketing the club to potential buyers.

They even reportedly flew to the World Cup in Qatar to hold informal meetings with parties interested in investing in the Red Devils.

Could new investors solve Liverpool's problems?

Liverpool have reached new lows this season and currently find themselves 10th in the league and in a huge battle to qualify for Europe.

Many have blamed a lack of investment as the reason for the downfall with the club failing to sign a proven midfield player since they purchased Thiago back in 2020 from Bayern Munich.

Manager Jurgen Klopp confirmed last month that English midfielder Jude Bellingham is on Liverpool's radar following his performances at the World Cup so he could solve some of their issues.

However, he's likely to cost upwards of £100m which is a sum that current owners FSG have never paid for a single player, so new investors are potentially what the Reds need if they are to challenge again.
