Discussions underway as Liverpool owners make move to buy French club Bordeaux

Liverpool’s owners, Fenway Sports Group (FSG), are in discussions to acquire struggling French club Bordeaux.

The club faced provisional relegation to the third-tier National 1 by French football’s financial regulator, the DNCG, on Tuesday, due to their inability to provide financial guarantees for the 2024–25 season.

Bordeaux is currently appealing the decision and has a two-week window to finalise a sale to remain in Ligue 2 next season.

During Tuesday’s meeting with the DNCG, both Bordeaux and FSG presented their takeover proposals.

“Fenway Sports Group has expressed interest in the potential acquisition of French football club Girondins de Bordeaux and is in the early stages of dialogue and engagement,” said FSG.

“While the process is at this exploratory phase, we will not be making any further comments.”

When FSG appointed Michael Edwards as their chief executive of football earlier this year, his responsibilities included identifying and managing a second club.

Bordeaux, who were granted an initial stay of proceedings by the DNCG on June 27, are currently in the spotlight. The six-time French champions were relegated to Ligue 2 at the end of the 2021–22 season.
