India's business tycoon Mukesh Ambani has drawn headlines over a possible purchase of a globally popular football club - Liverpool FC. Several reports claimed that Ambani has jumped into the race to win what would be his major venture toward the world's biggest sport. However, the later developments wrote a different story of curtailing such claims.
Mukesh Ambani is the eighth richest person in the world and recently, his tag of India's richest man has gone to Gautam Adani. Nevertheless, Ambani, who is the chairman of the Reliance Group, is at a good pace in expanding his empire and fortune and his fortress includes major business arenas and media houses. He also owns the Mumbai Indians cricket franchise in the Indian Premier League.
His venture into the ecosystem of sports has seemingly sparked speculations about Ambani's bid to acquire the popular English football club - Liverpool FC. According to a report published in Mirror Sport English daily, Liverpool has been approached by Mukesh Ambani with the club's current owner 'Fenway Sports Group' which was open for trade.
It has been reported that the current owners of Liverpool are willing to sell the club for 4 billion pounds, which won't be a bothering business for Ambani, who is worth $90 billion. However, Ambani's Reliance Group has curtailed such speculations and denied that Ambani has jumped into the race to take over ownership of Liverpool FC.
Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) on Sunday - November 13 denied the reports that it's Chairman and Managing Director Mukesh Ambani has entered the race to take over renowned football club Liverpool. It must be noted that it's not the first time Ambani has been linked with Liverpool as such a take-over bid was discussed in 2010 before the Fenway Sports Group purchased Liverpool.
