The eighth richest man in the world wants to buy Liverpool


Liverpool have been approached by Indian billionaire Mukesh Ambani about a possible takeover of the club, according to reports. Last week, it was revealed that Fenway Sports Group would be willing to sell the English club after 12 years at the helm. FSG is said to have already submitted a full sales proposal to potential buyers and are awaiting offers.

Ambani, ranked as the eighth richest man in the world by Forbes, has already inquired about the club, reports The Mirror. It is believed that FSG would be willing to part with Liverpool for around four billion euros. This award would not deter the sports-loving Ambani, a key figure in the Indian sports world. The 65-year-old owns the IPL cricket club franchise Mumbai Indians, while he also played a vital role in setting up the Indian Football Super League in 2013.

Ambani would be willing to ‘pump millions’ into the transfer market to help Liverpool close the gap with Manchester City. City have won four of the last five Premier League titles, with Liverpool’s triumph in 2020 the only exception.

In fact, Ambani’s net worth is 93.1 billion euros. This is 67.1 billion euros more than City’s owner, Sheikh Mansour.

It is expected that Ambani will have to fight off other investments from the Middle East as well as the US if he wants to take control of the Reds.
