Chelsea bidders with billions have no interest in buying Liverpool

The Ricketts family (worth $4.4 billion, according to Forbes’ real-time net worth calculator) will not be jumping into the ring to buy Liverpool Football Club.

This update comes from a tweet by Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph following Fenway Sports Group’s statement announcing the potential sale of the club.

The Americans are said to have already received an approach and other reports have claimed growing interest in the Middle Eastern Premier League team.

We wouldn’t be too surprised to hear of groups from this region striving to fully take over the side given previous failed attempts, including a 2007 bid from Dubai International Capital.

Whoever enters the club, whether through third-party investment or taking over as majority shareholder, it is essential that they have as pristine a personal history as possible; a questionable human rights record, for example, would be a BIG NO. not when it comes to the core fanbase.

While the prospect of being able to compete head-to-head with Manchester City and Newcastle United is more than appealing, it simply cannot come at the price of our morale.
