Liverpool takeover news as Jurgen Klopp gives 14-word response to FSG private talks

Liverpool takeover news as Jurgen Klopp provides update.

Jurgen Klopp has confirmed he’s held further talks with Fenway Sports Group (FSG) about a potential sale.

It’s been more than two months since it came to light that FSG put the Reds on the market. Speaking in November, Klopp said that he welcomed fresh investment into the club.

A host of parties have been linked with a possible purchase - from the likes of Qatar, Dubai, Saudi Arabia, India and America.

Klopp revealed that he has held further discussions with FSG about potential new investment - but kept his cards close to the chest when asked by LiverpoolWorld.

The Liverpool manager, speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of tomorrow’s FA Cup third-round replay against Wolves, replied: “Yes [I’ve been speaking to owners] but nothing for you reporters actually.

“What can I tell you about that? Nothing.”

Formal bids for Liverpool ‘are expected next month’ according to reports. It is said that FSG prefer a partial rather than a complete sale of the club.

The American group have owned Liverpool since completing a £300 million takeover in 2010 and oversaw the club return to the elite of European football.

The Telegraph reports that offers are expected to come in February with the auction ‘in full swing’.
