owners George Gillett
and Tom Hicks
have denied, denied, denied that they have discussed a sale of the club to the Dubai based investment fund DIC

have 1 day to take it or leave the offer from the government run fund. The offer on the table is 400m pounds.
Tired of the runaround, well it’s not the first time: DIC
has played this ‘last chance’ card before and are much more eager to buy than the owners to sell even though their tenure at Liverpool

are trying to gouge out a huge sale price.Tom Hicks
has especially been adamant that there is no negotiation taking place. Pffff, raspberries everywhere.
