Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries, is reportedly interested in buying Liverpool after the club was put up for sale by their current owners Fenway Sports Group (FSG), reported Mirror.
Ambani, with a net worth of around £90billion and rated by Forbes as the eighth richest person in the world, has already enquired about the club.
But he will have to fight off interest from other parties from the Middle East and the USA with Liverpool’s current owners Fenway Sports Group having been swamped with tentative offers.
It’s understood they are willing to sell for £4bn and there is a greater desire to buy the Merseyside club outright.
But that figure won’t put off Ambani who is a huge sports fan, reads the report.
A statement from FSG read: “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.
“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.”
