With Hicks & Gillette having lowered their asking price to £560 million for Liverpool FC, a number of groups have shown a desire to purchase the club.
It appears that a prospective new owner may be a wealthy Arabian figure.
Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, to give him his full name, is the current President of the United Arab Emirates and Emir (Ruler/ Leader) of Abu Dhabi.
He is one of the wealthiest Arab businessmen in the World. He is wealthier than his half-brother, Sheikh Mansour who is the owner of Manchester City FC.
Sheikh Khalifa, as he is known, is said to be the third wealthiest royal with his net-worth around $19 billion, he also has major interest in Abu Dhabi and UAE developments.
If he successfully takes over Liverpool, he will look to make major investments in the club and according to stats, with his wealth Liverpool could have more financial power than both Manchester City and Roman Abromovich’s Chelsea.
Lets hope he comes in, gets rid of the Yanks, invests in the team and a new stadium.
