The main talking point of the weekend was the miserable performance against Burnley, but the update on Liverpool’s potential Chinese investment is probably more important in regards to our future.
Paul Joyce in the Express has claimed that FSG are open minded about an approach from China Everbright – a state owned billionaire conglomerate.
FSG are not interested in selling Liverpool, but they’re happy to sell a minority stake for a hefty fee so the club can receive extra investment.
China Everbright have assets worth a ridiculous £602b, which would make Liverpool’s possibilities in the transfer market and commercially enormous.
Allen and Co, a boutique investment bank, would broker a potential deal between FSG and the Chinese – but one issue could be the difference in valuation. FSG value Liverpool at £1.4bn, while the consortium value us at £800m.
Discussions have yet to officially begin, but they’re expected in the coming weeks.
Where do you stand, Reds?
