Talks between CVC Capital Partners and Serie A have become more serious in recent weeks according to a report from the online edition of The Financial Times.

CVC Capital Partners are in exclusive talks with Serie A over a deal worth €2.2 billion which is designed to reshape the finances of Italy’s top flight.

CVC Capital Partners would like to acquire 20% of a new company that will manage Lega Serie A’s broadcasting rights from 2021 and the report claims that this is not all that CVC Capital Partners are after.

It goes on to add that the agreement includes the construction and maintenance of stadiums in Italy, which will be partly funded by CVC Capital Partners themselves and this could help Roma, Inter and AC Milan, all of whom are in the process of trying to build new stadiums.

CVC Capital Partners offer is set to be examined by Serie A’s board, which is headed by Lega Serie A president Paolo Dal Pino and also includes the presidents of Juventus, Napoli, Lazio and Atalanta.
