RMC Sport reports that three American candidates are currently in the race for the shares of Pathe capital and IDG capital, which would amount to 39.21% of OL Groupe's capital.
It would be a pension that is invested in the Milwaukee Bucks of the NBA. Foster Gillett, the son of John Textor and former owner of Liverpool, would manage it. He was already involved in Botafogo as well as Crystal Palace. Jean-Michel Aulas, as he has said for many weeks, would continue to lead OL despite new shareholders.
Foster Gillett's proposal is what would keep the team on the rope, according to the team. For EUR600 million, the American would become majority shareholder. This would include a portion of the Aulas family's share in Pathe and IDG. JMA would still be at the top of the club for a few seasons.
The EUR600m could be used in part for capital growth, debt reduction, and then finally for team strengthening.
There is however no immediate announcement.
