According to Sky Sports however, club owners David Gold and David Sullivan are not looking to sell at the moment. Moreover, no bids have yet been received from the energy drinks giant.

Gold and Sullivan bought a majority stake in the club in 2010. Red Bull on their part have been long rumored to be interested in purchasing an English club side, with Leeds United and Charlton Athletic named among their targets. West Ham is however said to be their preferred choice because of its location and facilities.

It wouldn’t be Red Bull’s first foray into owning a sports franchise. They currently own 4 football teams, Red Bull Salzburg, RB Leipzig, New York Red Bulls, Red Bull Brasil and two F1 teams, multi-champions Red Bull Racing and Scuderia Toro Rosso.
