Valencia fans show support for club's sale to S'pore billionaire Peter Lim
Spanish football club Valencia's Singapore owner has to wait a little while longer to celebrate his new buy.
It seems billionaire Peter Lim's takeover has hit a bump, no thanks to Spanish bank Bankia.
Back in May, reports said Mr Lim, via his company Meriton Holdings have become the majority owner of Valencia after buying 70.4 per cent of the shares that the club's foundation owned.
The only thing left to seal the deal? The majority shareholder has to agree a deal with Spanish bank Bankia, which the club owe 220 million euros (S$336.9m) to.
While the sale has been approved by the Foundation of Valencia CF, Football Espana reported it is being held up by Bankia which has reportedly decided to change the terms of sale.
It is not clear what Bankia's new terms are.
Mr Lim has the support of Valencia fans though.
Pictures posted online showed thousands of fans reportedly turning up in front of Valencia's stadium to support the sale of their beloved club to him.
Hash tags that accompany these pictures echo the same sentiments.
#LimTeQueremos #LimNoAbandones means "Lim we love you" and "Lim don't leave us" respectively.
And in case you're still wondering, Spanish newspaper as tweeted that Valencia president Amadeo Salvo is flying to Singapore to meet with Lim to iron out a deal.
Stay tuned for updates.
