February 5 According to the Daily Mail, Redbird Capital is considering increasing its stake in Liverpool
It is reported that Red Bird Capital has already had a preliminary dialogue with Liverpool’s owner Fenway Group. The former spent 533 million pounds in 2021 to buy 11% of Fenway Group’s shares.
Redbird Capital is now actively exploring ways to increase their investment in the club, expecting they will spend £1bn to maintain their ownership of Liverpool.
A source said: “There is a growing feeling internally that Fenway Group has no interest in selling the club and has little interest in selling another minority shareholder. It is estimated that buying a 20% stake in Fenway Group will cost £1bn.
Fenway Group is also looking at Manchester United, and if Manchester United were to sell for £7bn, then Liverpool would be significantly more expensive.”
Red Bird Capital is now keeping a distance from the news of the acquisition of the club, but they are willing to increase their shares. Red Bird already owns shares in Toulouse and AC Milan.
In addition, Fenway Group has also had a preliminary dialogue with the Qatar consortium. It is reported that Qatar hopes to buy a majority stake in Liverpool, but Fenway Group is only willing to sell a minority stake.
