Carlisle United chairman Andrew Jenkins has held talks with a potential investor who has requested to look at the club's books.
The unnamed suitor would not plough millions into the club and there would be certain conditions in place regarding investments.
Jenkins said: "It's not easy getting investment in with the history here, the debt of the club with you-know-who [Fred Story] which sometimes put people off.
"When they see we owe £1 million, they're not very keen. We've talked to three or four people in the last six months.
"One would probably come in, I don't think he would put millions in - he's not an Arab, or anything - he's a Carlisle supporter, expressed an interest and wants to see some figures, but also with a condition."
The underlying plan of Carlisle is to finance a new stadium and gain promotion to the Championship, and only time will tell if the mystery suitor has the money or commitment to help Carlisle achieve these goals.
