The Telegraph are reporting that a formal bid for Liverpool Football Club from potential new owners are expected next month.
Their chief football writer, Sam Wallace, mentions that the auction for both Manchester United and Liverpool are in ‘full swing’ right now.
There has been immense speculation around the future of both of these footballing powerhouses as numerous reports are linking new owners from around the world ranging from Qatar to Saudi Arabia to the United States of America.
In his article, Wallace mentions that the footballing world is changing, evidenced by Chelsea’s new consortium ownership led by Todd Boehly and Behdad Eghbali. This will not have been lost on existing football club owners, including the likes of FSG, who are reported to be looking to pass stewardship of the club over to new ownership.
This news will be music to the ears of Liverpool FC fans everywhere. Chelsea’s huge outlay on player signings in the summer and January window show no sign of slowing down with the news of their pursuit of Arsenal target Mykhaylo Mudryk. And a similar level of spending is what’s required for Liverpool if they’re going to compete domestically with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea as well as on a European level with the likes of Paris Saint Germain.
Liverpool fans know about the urgent need for midfield reinforcements in the team even before details emerged of Naby Keita reported to be let go for free by the club in the summer. If a bid does come in for the club next month, then it may give Jurgen Klopp a chance to plan for his summer targets with a larger budget in mind.
