Yesterday, Qatar-based investor Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani sent his delegation to meet with the club over his bid, which is reportedly the highest out of the two public offers. Talks between both parties lasted for around 10 hours and were positive.
Bidders will be urged to submit revised bids over the next fortnight, with Sheikh Jassim expected to table his new offer within 10 days.
