"Leaning towards..." - Major update drops over Liverpool sale as FSG plans become clearer

Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG) are leaning towards a partial sale of the club, according to a fresh report.

Last month, The Athletic announced the Liverpool owners FSG had put the club up for sale, and that a full sales presentation had been produced for interested parties.

Moreover, the publication claimed Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have been retained to assist with the process.

FSG subsequently released a statement in which they admitted they “would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club” but remained committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.”

FSG’s response to the Athletic report led to much confusion over the American’s stance - would they sell Liverpool, or are they merely seeking more investment? Moreover, if they were to sell Liverpool who would buy the Premier League club?


Partial Sale

The Boston Globe, a publication privately owned by FSG principal John W Henry, claims that the Liverpool owners are leaning towards a partial sale of the club, rather than a full takeover.

The Reds are said to be in a discussion with “an array of suitors” around either an equity purchase or a full sale.

But a partial sale is reportedly the most likely outcome with the desire to raise money for both ”player acquisition and capital improvements" central to their decision to explore their options for the Merseyside club in the market.

The Globe suggested that a minority partner could arrive on the board and subsequently secure a full takeover of the club further down the line.

The publication quotes a source that claims any investor "would need to be philosophically aligned with FSG’s fiscal tenets and team-building philosophies."

The report also stressed that FSG remains open to offers of a full takeover but as of yet, hasn't received any compelling offers.
