The Athletic reports that, even though the statement only mentions a third-party investment, a full sale is likely. It has also been reported that Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley will assist FSG with the process.

FSG took over Liverpool in 2010 and, in the 12 years since, have brought significant success to the Premier League club, with the Reds taking home their first Premier League title in 2020 while also having added a Champions League trophy, an FA Cup and a Carabao Cup to their collection of silverware. FSG’s appointment of Jürgen Klopp as Liverpool’s senior men’s team’s manager in 2015 has been instrumental in bringing success to the club. During this time, FSG has also installed at Anfield, the home of Liverpool’s senior men’s team, the £110m Main Stand and the £80m Anfield Road Stand, which is currently being redeveloped and will be unveiled in 2023. 

FSG released a statement, which 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.

FSG remains fully committed to the success of Liverpool, both on and off the pitch.

Forbes in 2021 valued Liverpool as the fifth-most-valuable football club in the world, at US$4.1 billion.
