Boston Red Sox Buy Liverpool: 144 Million Reasons Why Hicks, Gillett Want To Stop Sale

Though Martin Broughton has said Liverpool's sale to New England Sports Ventures (NESV) will go through, current owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett have 144 million reasons to keep fighting the sale. That fight, which will play-out in court over the next week (with Broughton seeking a declaratory judgment approving the sale), is the only way Liverpool's owners can save themselves from taking a bath on the sale.

According to the Guardian, the proposed £300 million sale to NESV would see Hicks and Gillett lose £144 million on their Liverpool investment. That figure stems from loans the two owners have made to the club, loans that would go unpaid under the agreement between Liverpool and NESV.
