Fenway Sports Group, the owner of the English football club Liverpool, has put the club up for sale, according to David Ornstein of The Athletic. The report says that the group is “inviting offers” from potential buyers and a “full sales presentation has been produced for interested parties.”

The Mirror UK has reported that Fenway Sports has roped in Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to help them sell the club. Although the intentions of the group to sell the club have been made clear, it is still not certain if a potential deal is likely.

However, the Fenway Sports Group did not admit to the claim that Liverpool has been put up for sale. They issued a statement saying that they are still fully committed to the success of Liverpool, but they also kept away from denying the claims in the report.

“There have been a number of recent changes of ownership and rumours of changes in ownership at EPL clubs and inevitably we are asked regularly about Fenway Sports Group’s ownership in Liverpool,” the Fenway Sports Group said in a statement.

“FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool. FSG has said before that under the right terms and conditions we would consider new shareholders if it was in the best interests of Liverpool as a club. FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch,” the statement added.

According to an estimate by Forbes, Liverpool is currently valued at 3.5 billion pounds. Earlier, The Mirror UK had reported that FSG refused an offer of nearly 3 billion pounds from the Middle East for Liverpool’s ownership. If the club is sold eventually, the price is expected to be above 4 billion pounds. 

The Fenway Sports Group is owned by American businessman John W. Henry.
