RedBird Capital Partners are expected to tie up an investment deal in Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group within the next six weeks.

Reports in the US last week revealed that an investment of $750m (£530m) was being planned by RedBird for a 10 per cent stake in the businesses of FSG, including Liverpool, the Boston Red Sox, NASCAR team Roush Fenway Racing and regional US cable sports channel NESN.

That 10 per cent won't change who is in charge at FSG or Liverpool, and quite what that investment is used for remains to be seen, whether infrastructure, shareholder dividends or reinforcing the playing staff at their major sporting teams But a look into what RedBird are all about suggests they may have more than a passing interest in Liverpool.

That's something which Red Bull have thrived at with RB Leipzig and Red Bull Salzburg.

Last summer Cardinale, through RedBird FC, a part of his RedBird Capital Partners firm, acquired French Ligue 2 side Toulouse.

But RedBird remain in the game, albeit without Beane, whose remit was said to have been heading up the potential portfolio of a number of football clubs under one umbrella, much like the Red Bull and City Football Group model.

"They have already planned investment projects in the training centre and the technical centre, and they are working with local authorities on the subject of the stadium and really seem to want to build a football club over the long term by doing their best to attract fans while respecting the history and specificities of football in France.
