Robinson fears Liverpool takeover will be delayed after BBC update
Paul Robinson fears it will “be hard” for Liverpool and Man United to both be sold for billions of pounds in the current market.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider, the former Spurs and England number one said Man United will be the more expensive of the two but also have “the bigger” global following.
Liverpool were put up for sale last month, with owners Fenway Sports Group looking for bids of over £3billion.
According to the BBC‘s Simon Stone (30 November), Man United could be sole before the end of the 2022-23 campaign.
The club was valued on the New York Stock Exchange at £3.05billion on Tuesday (29 November).
A full takeover would likely see the club sold for significantly more than that price.

When asked by Football Insider for his assessment of the latest, Robinson said: “It is going to be fascinating as to which club gets sold first.
“Who is the more attractive proposition? Historically, Man United have the bigger following. Liverpool are also a huge global brand though. I do not know who would be the more attractive proposition to investors.
“Money-wise, Man United will be more expensive. Which club is more financially viable? How do the books stack up? What does the club need?
“It will be interesting. It is a difficult market to sell the club for billions of pounds. It is going to be hard for them both.”
