It was revealed on Monday that Boston-based Fenway Sports Group is prepared to sell their English Premier League team, Liverpool. Fenway Sports Group (FSG) owns a controlling stake in the Liverpool, England based professional soccer club.

According to reports, FSG enlisted Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to help assist with the sale.

The investment group, which describes themselves as a "global sports, marketing, media, entertainment, and real estate company" was founded in 2001 by Boston Red Sox owner John Henry. FSG also owns a stake in the New England Sports Network (NESN), as well as NASCAR’s Roush Fenway Racing.

Henry's group bought Liverpool back in 2010 for 300 million pounds. According to ESPN's sources, the sale could be upwards of 4 billion pounds. Liverpool finished at least eighth or better in the Premier League every year since 2010, including one championship.
