Elon Musk wants to buy Man United’s biggest Rival rival team

Following the club’s listing by Fenway Sports Group, Liverpool has started their search for a new bιllιonaire owner.

After 12 years in charge, the current owners FSG made the shocking news on Monday that they will be considering offers. Forbes values the Reds at £3.5 bιllιon, which is substantially more than the initial £300 million the Americans spent, but John Henry and company are unwilling to sell for that amount.

Seven bιllιonaires who could рᴜrchase the Premier League giants have been identified by Daily Star Sport as Liverpool fans, players, and staff are now excitedly awaiting the announcement of the new owner at Anfield.

Sir Jim Ratcliffe


Britain’s richest man, Sir Jim Ratcliffe is seemingly in the mix whenever there is talk of a big-six Premier League club up for sale. He is worth an estimated £10.1bn, allowing him to own Ligue 1 club Nice, Swiss side FC Lausanne-Sport and cycling team Ineos Grenadiers already.

Chelsea supporters will recognize the name Ratcliffe because earlier this year, he expressed interest in purchasing the Blues from Roman Abramovich. He tried, but Todd Boehly took over, and he was unsuccessful. He then declared that if the Glazers decided to sell, he would buy Manchester United.

Muhsin Bayrak

Muhsin Bayrak, a Turkish bιllιonaire with interests in tourism, cryptocurrencies, and construction, is worth an astounding £8 bιllιon thanks to his company, AB Group Holding. As Abramovich traveled to Turkey to meet him, he was yet another well-known figure connected to buying Chelsea earlier this year.

Although Bayrak promised “we will fly the Turkish flag in London soon,” Boehly beat him to the west London club. But Liverpool, who recently won the Premier League and the Champions League championships, like Chelsea, could entice the business magnate to make another risky move.

Sheikh Khaled Bin Zayed Al Nehayan

If Sheikh Khaled Bin Zayed Al Nehayan became the Reds’ owner, the match between Liverpool and Manchester City would undoubtedly be even more entertaining. This is due to the fact that he is related to City’s rich owner Sheikh Mansour.

In 2018, the Abu Dhabi royal attempted to рᴜrchase Liverpool for £2 bιllιon in an unsuccessful bid to break the record for the most expensive football club takeover.

The most recent activities of Sheikh Khaled included making a £350 million offer for Newcastle in 2019 before negotiations broke down and being connected to purchasing Derby County.

Billy Beane

We may as well just call the list the ‘Chelsea rejects’ at this point because American Billy Beane teamed up with US investment firm RedBird Capital Partners in an attempt to buy the Blues this year.

Beane, who was a baseball player before revolutionising the sport with his ‘Moneyball’ philosophy as a general manager, is a Liverpool owner already – possessing an 11% stake in FSG. Selling the club to an associate could be the most straightforward step for John Henry.

LeBron James

It is commonly known that NBA legend LeBron James supports Liverpool. The Los Angeles Lakers legend entered the world of football ownership by acquiring a 2% share in the Reds 11 years ago. He frequently discusses the Reds’ development.

In March 2021, as he tightened his ties to the Anfield club with business associates Maverick Carter and Paul Wachter, LBJ joined FSG as a minority partner. Even “King James,” whose net worth is only about £1 bιllιon, cannot afford to conduct a broad takeover.

Elon Musk

Elon Musk, the new owner of Twitter, is possibly the person who would generate the largest uproar if they were to take control. The 51-year-old is reputedly worth a staggering £175 bιllιon, so he definitely has enough money.

By tweeting back in August, “Also, I’m purchasing Manchester United ur welcome,” Musk, who rose to fame with Tesla and SpaceX, previously indicated his interest in football ownership.

What Anfield might look like with Musk at the wheel is something we can’t not but imagine.

Sir Martin Broughton

This year, Sir Martin Broughton was unable to рᴜrchase Chelsea, his preferred football team. The US company Creative Artists Agency was supposed to provide financial support for his consortium, but it did not work out that way.

Since he helped arrange the final sale of the Reds to FSG while serving as the club’s interim chairman in 2010, he will be a name that Liverpool fans are already familiar with.
