With Anschutz and Clark out of the running, the two US parties left in the face are currently at different stages. One of the two consortiums is currently in the stage of due diligence, assessing the club`s current financial statements and structure ahead of a final bid and hopefully a deal agreement. The Chronicle tonight suggested that the deal could be done in six weeks.

By that time sterling could be at a one to one rate against the dollar, meaning the Seppos could be getting a seriously good deal!
