Report: Qatar Investment Authority Interested In Liverpool Takeover But FSG May Favour Further Red Bird Capital Investment

By Neil Andrew,


The future of the Merseyside club remains in the balance with FSG open to a full sale of the club or minority investment.

The Qatar Investment Authority (QIA) are interested in buying a controlling stake in Liverpool according to a report.

Rumours have been rife over recent weeks that there is interest in the Merseyside club from the Middle East after the Fenway Sports Group (FSG) put the club up for sale in November.

They have remained resolute in their stance however that they would also be open to minority investment and enlisted the help of Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to oversee the process.

According to Alex Miller , QIA would 'prefer to buy a controlling stake in Liverpool' whereas FSG are now leaning towards an initial sale of a minority share of the club.

That may open the door for Red Bird Capital Partners to increase their stake in FSG after they purchased an 11% share for £533million in 2021.

The sports finance journalist reports in The Mail that preliminary talks have already taken place between the two parties and the sale of a further 20% could mean a cash injection of £1billion to FSG, enabling them to maintain control at Liverpool.

Regardless of whether it is minority investment or a full takeover, Reds fans will be desperate to see a resolution as soon as possible, with substantial funds needed to rebuild Jurgen Klopp's flagging squad.
