Football Insider claim that the MLS has been touted as a potentially ideal destination, with the likes of Arsenal and Manchester City’s owners having already set up shop.

A £16m opportunity for FSG

With minority investments above £16m welcomed, Fenway Sports Group could first dip their toes into the pool if desired.

Though one might imagine John W. Henry and Co. will be keen to take over football operations as soon as possible to begin the process of playing catchup to our rivals’ multi-club models.

We don’t expect – and this has been reflected in various reports – our owners to seriously pursue the City Football Group’s wide-ranging umbrella.

It shouldn’t be unreasonable for Liverpool to develop a relationship with another club that’s akin to Brighton & Hove Albion’s arrangement with Royal Union St. Gilloise.
