‘New favourite’ worth ‘£112bn more’ than Man City’s Sheikh Mansour tipped to become owners of Liverpool 

Stephen Pagliuca, co-owner of the NBA’s Boston Celtics and Serie A’s Atalanta, has emerged as the “new favorite” to purchase Liverpool.

Current Reds owners FSG announced on Monday that they were open to investment proposals, and according to a report from the Daily Star (via TEAMTALK), Bain Capital is currently in the lead.

The company is estimated to be worth approximately £119 billion, while Manchester City’s owner Sheikh Mansour is worth approximately £17 billion.

The report also indicates that John Henry knows Pagliuca well, which could facilitate negotiations.

It was rumored that the 67-year-old was interested in taking over Chelsea before fellow American Todd Boehly replaced Roman Abramovich in May.

In August, however, former Burger King director Pagliuca was quoted by the Liverpool Echo as saying,  Liverpool Echo saying “What you learn in this business is worry or remorse doesn’t do anything.

“You’ve just got to wake up the next day and, you know, refocus. I told my partners and investors we would pay a premium but it would be a fiscally responsible premium.”

Currently, the fanbase is undoubtedly experiencing uncertainty.

Since taking over the club in 2010, FSG may have divided opinion, but it cannot be denied that they have helped transform the club both on and off the field.

The statement released by our current owners did not imply that they were willing to sell the entire club, but rather that they are eager to accept additional investment from third parties.
