Egyptian journalist now confirms truth about Qatar’s plan for Liverpool & Mo Salah

Posted by

Liverpool are reportedly set to receive a formal bid next month and it seems increasingly possible that it may originate from Qatar after Mo Salah was spotted in talks with QSI head Nasser bin Ghanim Al-Khelaifi.

Ismael Mahmoud, an Egyptian journalist, reported on Twitter that the latter plans to make the forward ‘one of the pillars of the Qatar project with Liverpool’ ahead of a rumoured takeover.

Given the club’s obvious opposition to a joint venture with a state entity, due to the Reds’ values and morally competent supporter base, it seems likely that any bid coming in February will arise from the private sector.

The possibility of having new owners capable of genuinely closing the gap to the financial juggernauts of the English top-flight is an exciting one, particularly when one considers the calibre of manager we have present at Anfield.

The rebuild job required alone certainly necessitates a higher level of investment than FSG may be able to offer, so a change in hands would be highly beneficial ahead of the summer window.

That being said, even bids coming from the private sector are problematic given the inevitable connections to the state and its more than questionable human rights record.

This is all purely academic, of course, until we learn how QSI plan to get around the barrier of UEFA’s regulations, which stipulate that the same entity can’t own two clubs in the same competition (Champions League).

  1. I am from Liverpool and have been a Liverpool fan for over 50 years as have my father and grandfather and my family. We still have aseason ticket holders in the family and when i was young i used to watch the games every week and see them train a Melwood at lunchtime. That said, if LFC become a state owned, bragging rights, money washed play thing then that will be the end of my love affair with this club.

    1. Ok, so then instead enjoy our mediocracy and forget about the ChL/ Europe/ title challengers.

      Like it or not, football nowadays is a big boys/ money bags affair. It was a miracle we lasted 5-6 years at such high level while being constantly badly outspent by all our major competitors, even much smaller teams outspent Liverpool. This is not a winning strategy. The old parochial local boys club days are well gone and we can either adapt or become a small time nobody. Wake up.

I would love wages capped I would love transfers capped and I would love to win the mega millions.However they are pipe dreams . We need Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham calibre players and they do not come cheap

  4. So take the thirty pieces of silver and sell our soul to the Quatar devil’s then? I’d rather watch us play in lower tiers than sell to ANY Arabic state. That’s because I’m a TRUE supporter like the guy previously posted.
