Bloomberg have provided an update on a potential sale of Liverpool FC.

News broke late last year that Fenway Sports Group were seeking new investors in Liverpool FC or an outright sale.

In recent weeks reports have circulated that FSG were leaning towards selling a minority stake in the club rather than a full sale.

Forbes have valued Liverpool at $4.45 billion. FSG are set to make a lucrative return on its 2010 investment. FSG bought the club for £300M.

Bloomberg, an incredibly reliable source, broke the news today that PSG owners Qatar Sports Investments are looking at a full or partial purchase of Liverpool FC.

The report states:

“Manchester United, Liverpool FC or Tottenham Hotspur are among England’s top Premier League clubs being targeted by Qatar, the Middle Eastern nation buoyed from hosting the most expensive World Cup ever.

Qatar Sports Investments chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi recently held conversations with Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy over the possible purchase of a stake in the London-based club, according to a person with knowledge of the meeting. QSI is also considering both a full takeover or a stake in rivals including Manchester United or Liverpool FC, added the person, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private.”
