Liverpool may soon be up for sale after billionaire owner John W Henry ‘quietly signalled’ he is willing to relinquish control of the Anfield club.
American Henry also owns the Boston Red Sox – winners of this year’s World Series – and the New York Post are reporting that he is currently ‘running a passive sales process’ for Liverpool.
In short, the paper report that he is entertaining offers in private, and would only accept a price north of $2billion.
A source is alleged to have said: ‘It’s for sale if he can get the right place.’
Liverpool have always publicly insisted that the club is not for sale, while Sportsmail understands Anfield chiefs believe $2bn would be undervaluing the club in the current market.
The club would welcome additional investment but it makes little sense for the Fenway Sports Group to relinquish total control at this time.
