Liverpool owners slash asking price for club investment

Tom Hicks and George Gillett have slashed their asking price for Liverpool.

The News of the World says they will now accept a £100million equity sale for as much 50 per cent of the shares at Anfield.

That is a massive drop from the £400m for a total buy-out they were earlier pursuing.

The Americans had wanted to raise funds by selling a 25 per cent stake for £100m but club sources have acknowledged that was a non-starter as interested parties want a controlling interest.

A new buyer would still have to commit another £300m longer- term to build the club a new 60,000-seater stadium at Stanley Park.
