There are reportedly six bids on the table for Liverpool FC.

Kenny Huang, head of Hong Kong based investment group QSL Sports Ltd, is the only person to have gone public with his interest in the Reds, but he is just one of six bidders according to the BBC.

Liverpool chairman Martin Broughton and investment bank Barclays Capital will examine all bids and then elect a preferred bidder by the end of next week.

The preferred bid will then be put to the Reds' five man board, consisting of Tom Hicks, George Gillett, Broughton, chief executive Christian Purslow and commercial director Ian Ayre.

A 3-2 majority will allegedly be enough for any sale to go through so it's possible the club could be sold even if the parasites Hicks and Gillett don't want to sell, although whether the three employees will vote against their employers is open to doubt.
