NEW: What Ashley & Staveley are believed to have discussed during their leaked meeting in London

It was confirmed last night that Mike Ashley and Amanda Staveley held face-to-face talks in an Indian restaurant in London this week and The Chronicle have provided an interesting nugget of info on their recent meeting, stating that the pair are understood to have personally negotiated on a price for the first time – with their solicitors having done all of that work previously.

The NUFC owner and prospective buyer were snapped by the Sun newspaper, with a story going out late last night confirming that the duo had met for the FIRST time to discuss a potential buy-out over a curry in London last night.

Here’s an update on their talks, with The Chronicle weighing in with this interesting snippet today following last night’s breaking news:

“Up until last night, the talks between Ashley and Staveley had taken place via the pair’s solicitors, but it is believed the two business tycoons discussed a price.”

Even though it has been suggested that any takeover is now highly unlikely to be completed in January (with February now the month being tipped due to the 30-40 day period needed for the Premier League to ratify a takeover), this has to be seen as a positive sign – showing that both parties are clearly willing to talk and thrash out a deal.

The Chronicle also reveal that meeting was set up by media mogul Richard Desmond, with it being claimed that: “Ashley and Staveley found a common ground during the dinner on Wednesday night and there is a willingness to continue negotiations.”

Positive steps are clearly being taken, but the below tweet is quite apt to keep any over-excitement at bay!

  1. I can imagine the scenario, “right Mandy, if you finish that phal you can have it at £250mil” Mandy replies with “deal”, Mandy then polishes off the phal with no problems as Mike struggles with his Korma” I am a northern lass at heart Mike” and I have this conversation on tape so no wriggling out of it this time just because you’ve had 2 shandies ”
