Liverpool NOT for sale, Nunez trains & more Mount talk – Latest LFC News

Liverpool’s build-up to the visit of Real Madrid has seen Darwin Nunez push to prove his fitness and a strong statement from the club’s owner over their plans for investment.


Liverpool FC NOT for sale

Since November, the future of the club has been cast into uncertainty after FSG confirmed they were seeking investment, with Liverpool then swiftly reported to be up for sale.

There’s been speculation aplenty over possible interested parties but the line quickly shifted from a full sale to a minority investment, allowing FSG to retain the controlling stake.

And this has now been confirmed by owner John Henry, who insists that the club is not for sale.

Speaking to the Boston Sports Journal, the 73-year-old was asked about the situation at Anfield.

“I know there has been a lot of conversation and quotes about LFC, but I keep to the facts: we merely formalized an ongoing process,” Henry said.

“Will we be in England forever? No. Are we selling LFC? No. Are talking with investors about LFC? Yes.

“Will something happen there? I believe so, but it won’t be a sale. Have we sold anything in the past 20-plus years?”

It’s a clear statement, but one that may not be popular among some supporters.


Real Madrid, here we go!

  • There’s a chanceDarwin Nunez could be involved against Real but it will come down to how he can deal with pain – though, he was one of 25 players to train at Kirkby on Monday afternoon.
  • Jurgen Klopp wants Anfield to be “on their toes” for Real’s visit, their last trip was to an empty Anfield. You don’t have to tell us twice, Jurgen!
