Liverpool FC owner names asking price to sell club


John W Henry has revealed selling price of Liverpool FC

The Liverpool owner is "privately entertaining offers" for the Reds that's according to the New York Post.

The report claim The American Billionaire has tagged a $2billion price on the club.

Last time it was reported that FSG rejected an approach by the cousin to Manchester City owner Sheik Kahled to take full control of the club.

However, it is now claimed that the Boston Red Sox supremo is willing to listen to offers from potential buyers.

Henry is in line for a massive profit on the $447million he paid for the club back in 2010 if he has to sell the club for $2billion.

A football finance expert claims Henry is in line for an even bigger windfall if he hold on a bit longer.

"FSG see a lot more growth in the club," Kieran Maguire told the Liverpool Echo . "In their masterplan, they'll believe in four to five years Liverpool will be worth closer to £3bn.

"The most recent Premier League takeover deal that went through was at Arsenal where Stan Kroenke bought out Alisher Usmanov. That valued Arsenal at around £1.8bn.

"While Arsenal have historically been able to generate more money from matchday revenue as they have a bigger stadium, Liverpool have taken steps to bridge that gap and are by far the more popular with sponsors and commercial partners because they have the history and heritage which appeals to an overseas fanbase.

"If Arsenal are worth £1.8bn then Liverpool are worth at least £2bn. And if they continue to succeed on the field then they could easily add another £500m in the next few years.

"From an FSG point of view, it would be daft to sell for £2bn."
