REVEALED: Liverpool enter talks with Saudi Arabian and Qatari consortiums over a potential £3BILLION takeover as Fenway Sports Group set the wheels in motion for a sale at Anfield

Liverpool's FSG owners have held talks with two Middle East-based consortiumsSportsmail can reveal Saudi and Qatari chiefs have expressed interest in buyingFSG announced their intentions to sell their stake in Liverpool earlier this monthBoth interested parties are said to be private companies and not state-owned 

Liverpool have held discussions with two Middle East-based consortiums over a £3billion takeover.

The Mail on Sunday has learned that representatives of consortiums from Saudi Arabia and Qatar have expressed an interest in buying the club.

Several sources report that consortium officials have approached Fenway Sports Group director Mike Gordon – the man responsible for the sale of Liverpool – to register their interest.

It is understood both groups are private companies rather than state-owned.

However both consortiums are thought to have close links with their country’s ruling families.

Saudi Arabia’s Sports Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Turki Al-Faisal this week encouraged takeover bids for both Liverpool and Manchester United.

Both clubs have been exploring potential sales options over the past month.

He said: ‘From the private sector, I can’t speak on their behalf, but there is a lot of interest and appetite and there’s a lot of passion about football.

‘We will definitely support it if any [Saudi] private sector comes in, because we know that’s going to reflect positively on sports within the kingdom.’

The kingdom’s state-backed Public Investment Fund (PIF) have already acquired Newcastle United.

Liverpool are also in discussions with a US-based buyer, while Britain’s richest man Sir Jim Ratcliffe and tech-giants Apple have been linked with United bids.
