The eighth-richest man in the world worth £90 billion approach Liverpool with a takeover offer bid

The eighth-richest man in the world worth £90 billion approach Liverpool with a takeover offer bid

Mukesh Ambani, a multibillionaire Indian businessman, is reportedly interested in purchasing Liverpool.

Ambani, who has an estimated net worth of £90 billion and is ranked eighth wealthiest by Forbes, has already inquired about the club.

Liverpool’s current owners, Fenway Sports Group, have been inundated with tentative bids from groups in the Middle East and the United States, so he will have to compete with them.

It is said that they are willing to sell for £4 billion, and there is a strong desire to purchase the Merseyside club outright.

However, this number would not deter Ambani, who is an avid sports lover.

He is the owner of the IPL cricket powerhouse Mumbai Indians and helped establish the Indian football Super League.

While cricket is revered as a religion in India, football is quickly gaining popularity, with the English Premier League generating enormous interest and Liverpool becoming one of the most supported clubs, with shirt sales soaring.

Liverpool’s aspirations to be one of Europe’s most successful clubs would be bolstered by Ambani’s, 65, immense fortune and passion for success, as he would be willing to invest millions in the club for transfers.

After completing the acquisition of Mumbai Indians, he was dubbed “The World’s Richest Sports Team Owner,” which will be music to the ears of Liverpool supporters, some of whom believe FSG have not fully supported manager Jurgen Klopp in the transfer market.

However, as interest from Dubai, Bahrain, and the United States intensifies, Ambani won’t have the negotiation table to himself, which is great news for FSG co-founder John W Henry and his friends.

Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley were hired by Fenway to look into the idea of an investment in the club or a total takeover.
