The Liverpool is going through one of its worst seasons in recent years. The team led by Jürgen Klopp was recently beaten by Real Madrid (3-1) in the first leg of the UEFA Champions League Quarter-Finals, and is in seventh place in the Premier League. In addition, like many other clubs in the world, it faces the difficulties and crises derived from the coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately for the ‘red’ cause, LeBron James – a famous American basketball player – through his company RedBird Capital Partners has made an investment of 625 million euros in the English team.
The injuries in the lower part of Klopp’s team have left a staff very weak, in itself little reinforced by the austerity policy applied at Anfield as a result of the pandemic. Fortunately, as reported in the media, The investment made in Liverpool by LeBron James’ company will allow the board to carry out a plan that will help them not only pay the debt of recent months – it is estimated that this season, Liverpool’s losses will amount to 130 million euros – but to start a total restructuring in the team.
According to the newspaper ‘AS’, The English team plans to remodel Anfield, increasing the stadium seating to 61,000 spectators, something that would have an approximate cost of 70 million euros. Likewise, those of Klopp will be able to reach the summer market with the necessary stability to carry out significant transfers: Ousmane Dembele, Vinicius Jr, Martin Odegaard y Aïssa Mandi are some of the names that have been polled by the board of the still champion of the Premier League.
