Kolkata: English Premier League giants Manchester United may possibly take the ownership of Kolkata giants East Bengal. This could be a game-changing move for the struggling East Bengal.

BCCI President and former Indian cricket captain Sourav Ganguly  is facilitating the deal. Ganguly told media that negotiations talks are on with Manchester United and a few others. A clear picture is expected to emerge in about two weeks.

BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said, “Yes we have spoken to them and others also. It will take 10-12 more days to know who will be the entity. Clarifying the issue over investor or owner of the English club, the Prince of Bengal said,”No-no (they are coming) as an owner.”. Ganguly however refused to delve further into it. “It takes some time. First, let it reach a stage then we will make a comment. I will speak only after there’s a concrete development,” Ganguly said.

East Bengal were also in talks with Bangladesh conglomerate Bashundhra Group, where the deal did not took any shape.
