According to a report from Forbes published in early November, Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder has hired Bank of America to explore a potential sale of the franchise and has had "at least four calls from groups interested in buying the team."

The Commanders have since confirmed the news, releasing a statement stating that they were exploring "potential transactions."

Jeff Bezos, the world's richest man, and Jay-Z, the world's first billion-dollar rapper, may be, according to People, in cahoots to buy the team together.

Manchester United – $4.6 billion

Manchester United's owners, the Glazer family, put the club up for sale on Tuesday, the same day the club announced that it had terminated the contract of Cristiano Ronaldo following his controversial interview with Piers Morgan.

The soccer club's board said it was "commencing a process to explore strategic alternatives."

In August, a spokesperson for Britain's richest man, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, said the billionaire would be interested in buying United if it came up for sale.

Liverpool FC – $4.6 billion

Just weeks before Manchester United was put up for sale, Liverpool's owners, Fenway Sports Group, did the same.

According to The Athletic, FSG are "inviting offers" for Liverpool and have made a full sales presentation for interested parties.

RedBird Capital Partners, which already owns an 11% stake in FSG and Italian soccer side AC Milan, is among those touted to be the club's next owner.

Phoenix Suns – $2.7 billion

Robert Sarver, the owner of the NBA's Phoenix Suns and the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury, announced in September that he was selling both of the teams.

He said it was because of the "current unforgiving climate."

Just weeks prior, Sarver was fined and suspended by the NBA following an independent investigation that concluded he used the "N-word" at least five times during his tenure with the teams and made repeated "sex-related" comments to female employees.

"As a man of faith, I believe in atonement and the path to forgiveness. I expected that the commissioner's one-year suspension would provide the time for me to focus, make amends and remove my personal controversy from the teams that I and so many fans love," Sarver said in a statement.

He added: "It has become painfully clear that that is no longer possible."

Los Angeles Angels – $2.2 billion

ESPN reported in August that Arte Moreno, who has owned the Los Angeles Angels for almost two decades, had "initiated a formal process to evaluate strategic alternatives, including a possible sale of the team."

Los Angeles Times owner Patrick Soon-Shiong was reported by Sportico in September to be considering a bid for the Major League Baseball team.

Soon-Shiong, whose net worth is estimated to be $9 billion, previously tried to buy MLB's Los Angeles Dodgers.

Washington Nationals – $2 billion

MLB's Washington Nationals have been up for sale since April, but a buyer is yet to be found.

According to The Athletic, the hold-up is because of the team's litigation surrounding the rights fee received from cable outlet MASN — a saga that has been rumbling on for years.

Ottawa Senators – $525 million

The NHL's Ottawa Senators are looking for a new owner following the death of long-time owner Eugene Melnyk.

Forbes reported that the team was officially put up for sale in early November and that several qualified investment groups are already interested in acquiring the team.

Though valued at $525 million, Forbes reported any sale is expected to fetch far more.
