The energy drinks company want to add to their sporting portfolio.
Energy drink giants Red Bull are looking into the possibility of buying an English club as Everton and Liverpool are the highest profile names on the list, reports the Mirror.
The company wants to develop the side to get them to a point of eventually qualifying for the Champions League, with Crystal Palace, Leeds United and West Ham United also short-listed.
Red Bull already own MLS team New York Red Bulls – who boast Tim Cahill and Thierry Henry as playing talents – and Red Bull Salzburg in Austria.
They also have the current Formula 1 champions on their books, but top European football is now the new aim.
Salzburg sporting director Ralf Rangnick is a German who was educated in England and would oversee the buying and running of the club.
It would be an attractive prospect for several sides as the money the billionaires would pump into the club would be welcomed.
The Reds are likely to be the most likely team that’s wanted, due to their rich heritage in Europe and worldwide appeal.
Red Bull would of course want to make as much money as possible from the venture and the Merseysider’s American owners would have their heads turned by a big offer.
Whether or not the Anfield faithful would like to see their team re-branded as Red Bull Liverpool is another matter though.
