REPORT: FSG were willing to sell…

James Pearce has stated that FSG would have sold if they offer was right.

John Henry has told reporters in a Q and A in Boston that Liverpool FC will not be sold.

He has stated that Liverpool will seek investment but FSG will not be selling the club.

“I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about LFC (Liverpool Football Club), but I keep to the facts: we merely formalized an ongoing process.

“Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling LFC? No. Are we talking with investors about LFC? Yes. Will something happen there? I believe so but it won’t be a sale.”

James Pearce, writing for The Athletic today, stated that FSG would have sold the club of they an “attractive enough offer”.

Pearce writes:

“The Athletic revealed in November that Liverpool’s owners were willing to sell if they got an attractive enough offer for an asset valued at around £4billion ($4.8billion).

US banks Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley were tasked with sounding out interest.

However, three months on, no such offer has been forthcoming and it has become increasingly clear that selling a small stake in the club was the most likely outcome.”
