Journalist details if Qatar could now buy Liverpool after Man Utd takeover collapse


Qatar reportedly still have money set aside for taking over a Premier League club amid rumours that Liverpool are on the Middle Eastern state’s agenda.

According to the Daily Mail’s Mikel Keegan, Qatar have set aside as much as $8bn (£6.5bn) to take over an English club, with news breaking recently that a deal to buy Manchester United had collapsed.

As a result, Liverpool could now be on Qatar’s radar, with the Arab state still eager to follow in Saudi Arabia’s footsteps and buy one of the Premier League’s most historic sides.

Keegan said: “What I know about is that they set aside $8bn for this project. That money is there and ready to go. It will be burning a hole in their pocket.

“What a story that would be, if they were that way inclined. From what I am led to believe they are very disappointed and angered at how this has played out.

“What better way to respond than go to United’s biggest rivals down the road and throw all the money you were going to put into United into making them pay for that decision not to sell to you.”

Nation states getting involved with football is a worrying trend that’s showing no sign of slowing time, and Liverpool fans should be hoping that a Qatar takeover isn’t on the cards.

Whilst there is an appetite for new owners to come to replace FSG, few supporters will stand with a nation-state like Qatar buying Liverpool given their reported human rights abuses.

Indeed, Liverpool fans know that a change at the top is needed, yet with the situation not as desperate as United’s supporters need to ensure that they are against a Qatari bid.
