Liverpool has been placed up for sale by Fenway Sports Group (FSG).
The club’s American owners, who have owned it since 2010, are now accepting bids for the Merseyside club, and a detailed sales presentation has been prepared for buyers.
FSG has been in charge at Anfield since October 2010, when they bought the club from George Gillett and Tom Hicks, but they are now claimed to be ‘inviting proposals.’
Investment banking giants Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley have reportedly been recruited to help with the process.
In a statement given to the Athletic, FSG said that ‘under the right terms and conditions’ they would be open to selling the club.
‘FSG has frequently received expressions of interest from third parties seeking to become shareholders in Liverpool,’ FSG wrote.
‘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 have overseen an incredible amount of success at Liverpool, particularly since the hiring of manager Jurgen Klopp in 2015.
The German coach delivered a Premier League title as well as the Champions League, the Carabao Cup and the FA Cup.
FSG, who also own the baseball franchise Boston Red Sox, television network NESN, 50 per cent of Roush Fenway Racing and Fenway Sports Management, is led by John W Henry.
In 2021 FSG sold an 11 per cent stake in the company for $750m (£655m) to RedBird Capital Partners – a move which saw them reinvest that money to take a controlling stake in NHL ice hockey team Pittsburgh Penguins.
