Liverpool's owners have made a massive decision on the sale of the club

The club's owners may have changed their plans, according to reports.

Liverpool's owners have reportedly changed their plans to sell the club, according to reports. Earlier this season, news broke that Fenway Sports Group were looking to aim to end its 12-year ownership of the club.

The Boston-based organisation were said to be planning a full sale of the Anfield club. Yet, according to reports, they may now have changed their plan.

According to The Athletic, FSG are now aiming to sell a minority stake in the club and are searching for new investment, rather than a full sale of the club.

This would bring a much-needed cash injection into the club, which would be a boost as Jurgen Klopp attempts to overhaul the Liverpool squad.

The Athletic report that FSG have recruited banks Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley to find potential investors in the club.

It is also believed that the ownership group did not receive a suitable bid for full ownership of the club.

FSG bought Liverpool for £300m in October 2010. The Merseyside club are now valued at over £3billion.
