Liverpool snub £110m bid

2010-04-07 10:24

Liverpool - Liverpool are understood to have rejected a £110 million bid by the Rhone Group which would have seen the New York-based investment fund take a 40 percent controlling stake in the English Premiership club.

The UK press reported on Tuesday that the Monday deadline given by the fund passed with no positive response from the Anfield club. The proposal is thought to have been scuppered by the amount of control the group wanted to exercise for their stake in the club.

According to the SportBusiness website, Rhone are now thought to have withdrawn their offer, although may be prepared to reopen talks later should Liverpool approach them.

Liverpool creditors Royal Bank of Scotland have demanded that the club finds £100 million from new investors to be able to refinance its £237 million debts. The club now has three months to find the requisite investment.

At least two more potential investors are reported to be monitoring Liverpool’s situation but are likely to wait until the end of the season before making their move.

    The last I checked, our debt was around 237 mil, compared to say Utd's at 800 mil, so a 110 mil investment would mean only 127 mil debt, which ain't bad when compared to other big clubs. But do we want more US investment after what has happenned with these stupid yanks ? Just sell the whole club for like 300 mil to some Arab & we are SORTED, in terms of future quality signings as well ...

    Take the 110 million offer !! - So that we can buy Benitez out of his contract - and get rid of the stupid negative c**t - and his blow job partner Lucas !!!!

    Te Loserfoolls are more concerned about Man Utd's debt, they are in bigger sh*it with their small change. 40% of the club for £110m what a joke! for club with big mouth supporters. At least we have the Red Knights, with a back up plan, all they have is their big mouths.

  • Rafa hehehe - 2010-04-08 08:47

    Com'on you big mouths supporteers, surely amongst you millions of Loserfools you can rake up £110m. Talk is cheap. Get Arendse, that other clown with big grin when they win, yes, Nemach and join shankly's gate, sorry! spirit of Shankly and do something positive. Or join, so we can fight for your cause also. maybe you should start wearing yellow and green scarfs too. Toothless bigmouthed bigots u are!!! Easi to make your shallow comments on this forum go do something.

    And after Man U exit last night, guess who will be lookin for new investors!

    @Ignorant Joe, uninformed bigots like you are typically who should just read, listen and look for the next 5 years so that u can become learned before you comment. Man Utd supporters don't want investors. We wish they can all go away b'cos we are prepared to invest in the club ourselves, u'r really duh!
