Confident DIC convinced of Liverpool takeover
DIC appears sure that Hicks' public attempts to find the finance to acquire the club outright for himself are doomed to failure. DIC expects the Texan to sell to it and believes he is now just posturing.
Meetings have continued behind the scenes over the last few weeks, including several with former players and people who have influence at the club, as DIC wants to make sure it has the fans' approval, which the company believes is vital.
A sure sign of their confidence is the decision by DIC chief executive Samir Al-Ansari and their chief negotiator Amanda Staveley to accept an invitation from Gillett to see tonight's Champions League semi against Chelsea at Anfield.
