Liverpool are poised to agree a £156m takeover by the investment arm of Dubai’s government.
The club’s directors are to discuss the proposals by the Dubai International Capital Group at a meeting on Tuesday, after which agreement of the deal appears a formality.
The deal, which will give chairman David Moores a windfal off more than £75m, is expected to be finalised next week.
Liverpool chief executive Rick Parry said the deal was “not a quick fix, a rich man’s play-thing. It’s a long-term model for success, based around the new stadium”.
“This will take us to the next level,” he added.
