China bids for Liverpool FC versus international aid budget

Chinese company QSL Sport Ltd, which is backed by a state owned investment fund announced today that it may bid to buy Liverpool FC. How many millions of pounds will this cost??? The United Kingdom presently give China £40.2m per annum in aid. According to a govt web site the UK will in 2010-11 give £7.7bn in aid to countries including Russia, India, FR Yugoslavia, South Africa, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe. In the last few days the govt announced it will give Pakistan £10m in aid. Whilst I agree with this after the terrible floods which have so far claimed hundreds of deaths and millions in need of assistance, how does the govt justify giving this amount of OUR money to some countries which have more stable economies?
