It is understood that if the takeover goes through, Liverpool will be armed with massive resources in the transfer market and much like Manchester City, they will be able to sign the very best players.

Time will tell whether these reports are true, but there is no doubt that Liverpool will need a move like this to compete with the likes of Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern or even English clubs like City, Chelsea and United.
