In news that will likely upset many Reds, the latest investment of capital into FSG from RedBird Capital Partners is not going to change how Liverpool’s owners buy players.
That’s according to journalist Chris Bascombe, who explained as much on Twitter while stating that the money will help the next Anfield expansion plans.
FSG have confirmed sale of 10 per cent of company for £543m to the aptly named RedBird Capital Partners. Money will help the Anfield Road expansion. Business as usual with transfer policy/running of club.

So we can probably rule out Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland this summer, we reckon!
Liverpool look like they will sign Ibrahima Konate, and maybe Ozan Kabak permanently too – which demonstrates the club is looking at bringing in an influx of young players who can begin to peak in two to three years when our current crop of world-class performers are over the hill.
It’s a smart tactic. If you bring in too many 23/24-year-olds now, they probably won’t play much – and will stagnate – but controlling the minutes of 20/21-years-olds is much easier.
