Liverpool football fans have demanded they be consulted over any potential sale of the club.

The Spirit of Shankly supporters group wants top ensure any new owners or partners have the ideologies that align with the club.

Current owners, the Fenway Sports Group say they are willing to step away from the club after 12 years. If the American owners do decide to part ways, they can look back on a successful era at Anfield winning the Champions League and the club’s first title in 30 years.

Amid speculation they are willing to sell the club outright, a new partner seems to be the more desired option. Principal owner John Henry has employed major banks Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to assess current market conditions.

It is believed talks have been held with multiple potential owners, with consortiums from Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Germany the frontrunners. The decision to sell by FSG has caused shockwaves through the Liverpool fanbase with mixed reactions.
