China Everbright in talks about Liverpool stake (FSG value Reds at £​1bn)

Hong Kong-based China Everbright Group remain keen on Liverpool, it has been revealed.

The Sun says Fenway Sports Group – who bought the Reds for £300m in October 2010 are not considering an outright sale but may offer a minority stake.

Their advisers, Allen & Co, have compared the Anfield outfit to the likes of Manchester United and City, valuing the club at £1 billion.

And Bloomberg claim an inside source believes the investment group are willing to come closer to that valuation because of the new broadcasting deal and seats being added to Anfield.

This is despite a period of relative struggled at Liverpool, who have not won the Premier League since 1990.
