Two Middle East-based consortiums are reportedly interested in Liverpool FC after the Premier League club’s owner announced earlier this month it would “consider new shareholders.” 

Fenway Sports Group, which purchased the team for around $343.56 million in 2010, has reportedly held discussions with consortiums from Saudi Arabia and Qatar about a $3.6 billion takeover. 

Forbes last valued the club at $4.45 billion — the fourth-most valuable in soccer. 

  • Saudi Arabia’s sports prime minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al Faisal said the government “will definitely support” private-sector Liverpool bids.
  • Prince Abdulaziz would also back a bid for Manchester United, whose owners recently announced plans to look at “strategic alternatives” for the club.

Under FSG — which is also reportedly in discussions with a U.S.-based buyer — Liverpool has won the Premier League, the UEFA Champions League, the FA Cup, and the Carabao Cup.

Mumbai Indians owner Mukesh Ambani and Boston Celtics owner Steve Pagliuca are among those potentially interested.

Prime Portfolio

Should Fenway Sports Group sell Liverpool, its sports portfolio will remain strong. 

The company owns the Pittsburgh Penguins and Boston Red Sox and is reportedly interested in an NBA franchise. FSG owner John Henry is also a possible contender to buy the Washington Commanders.
