REVEALED: Mega-rich Qatari Royal Family opens up about links to buying Liverpool
After Fenway Sports Group announced last month that the Premier League giants are up for sale in some manner, the future ownership of Liverpool Football Club is still in question.
The American owners are willing to sell the Reds in full or in part, although the most recent sources indicate that the latter is now more likely.
The Boston Globe reports that the US owners of the club may team up with another partner located in North America and that FSG are leaning toward a partial sale of Liverpool rather than a full takeover of the club.
This would bring significant investment for transfers for the present and could see the investors slowly take full ownership of the club.
The royal family of Qatar has been mentioned in connection with a full takeover of the Merseyside club among other potential owners.
The Qatari Royal Family has now disqualified themselves from buying Liverpool and has stated that Paris Saint-Germain is their only priority.
Sheikh Jooan Al Thani, the head of the Qatar Olympic Committee, isn’t in discussions with FSG about a potential complete or partial takeover of the team, according to ESPN.
According to the report, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamas Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar, who owns PSG through Qatar Sports Investment (QSI), is currently entirely focused on the Ligue 1 team.
This eliminates the possibility of the Reds having a different owner.
