Manchester City are already owned by Sheikh Mansour who is member of the Abu Dhabi royal family.

Now a member of his family has set his sights on snapping up Liverpool and has more than £700m in the bank waiting to complete a deal.

Starsport revealed at the start of the month that talks have already opened on a proposed sale.

Although the identity of the bidder remains a closely guarded secret, one likely candidate is Sheikh Khalifa, the president of the United Arab Emirates.

This is an old story rehashed. Apparently Mafeking has been relieved as well.
