Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the current ruler of Dubai and founder of Dubai International Capital, played an active role in Liverpool's takeover attempt in 2008. It was the first time a Premier League club had come under sovereign scrutiny before Manchester  City was bought by Abu Dhabi through the Saudi Arabian investment fund that recently bought Newcastle.

Dubai's interests could once again play a key role in Liverpool's takeover.

There has been speculation in the Middle East that Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, who is believed to have lost interest in the club at the start of last year's credit crunch, is gearing up for a further move.

It has been gathered that a £4.5bn approach has been made and the Oil-rich country elites are seemingly in a pole position to buy the Merseyside club.

Investing in the Middle East could be where Liverpool are looking for a new owner, with Dubai International Capital (DIC) reportedly rekindling interest in buying the club.

Liverpool could become the next European powerhouse in the football market. We've seen City moved from scramble to become one of Europe's most dreaded clubs since the Arab's big spenders took over the club.

Liverpool fans could see their dream lineup of Kylian Mbappe and Jude Bellingham once Jurgen Klopp gets the financial power to pull off both signings next summer. There could be nothing stopping the Reds to grasp the player of their choice should the DIC eventually tie the knot with the club.

Klopp could finally be on the same page as Pep Guardiola after his 'cheeky' comments about Manchester City that sparked wild reactions last month.

Klopp said,  prior to the 1-0 win over Manchester City : "There are three clubs [the Gulf state-owned City, Newcastle and PSG] in world football who can do what they want financially. It's legal and everything, fine, but they can do what they want."
