Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director of Reliance Industries, is reportedly eyeing up a bid to take over Liverpool.

FSG, who took charge of the Liverpool club in 2010, stunned the footballing world earlier this week when they said they would be open to listening to offers for the club.

As per rumours, FSG are willing to sell for £4bn, and they would prefer a complete sale, rather than a stake dilution.

Ambani, with a net worth of around £90billion and rated by Forbes as the eighth richest person in the world, has already enquired about the club.

However, it is not the first time Mukesh Ambani had shown interest in buying Liverpool.

Ambani’s first interest in Liverpool dates back to 2010 when it was co-owned by Tom Hicks and George Gillett.

Back then, Ambani’s net worth was $20 billion whereas now it has shot up nearly five times to $92.6b.

In 2010, along with Subroto Roy, chairman of Sahara Group, Reliance Industries wanted to bid for a 51 per cent stake in Liverpool.

However, the rumours were denied by then Liverpool chief executive Christain Purslow.

This is definitely an exciting news for Indian football fans.
