No bids yet but that’s okay, says chairman Broughton
LIVERPOOL chairman Martin Broughton says there have no been no bids for the club yet but still hopes a sale will go through by the end of August.
The Reds’ American co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett officially put the club on the market in May, with British Airways chief Broughton tasked with overseeing the process.
“There have not been any offers at this stage,” said Broughton.
“We are looking to the middle of July-ish for the first round of bids but that’s not a final stage – that’s a first entry through.
“We’re hopeful – and I wouldn’t put it any stronger than that – that a deal can be done by the end of the transfer season.”
