Mexican Magnate Amado Yáñez To Purchase Spanish Second Division Side Alcorcón
Mexican businessman Amado Yáñez, who owns Liga MX side Querétaro, Mexican baseball club Delfines de Carmen and Mexican second-division sides Neza and Pumas de Morelos, "has expressed interest in buying Spanish second-division side Alcorcón." The "negotiations are already very advanced." Everything "points to Alcorcón belonging to Yáñez in the next few days." Alcorcón said in a statement, "The negotiations began three or four months ago, before last season concluded. We were looking for someone who would buy a majority shareholder package of more than 50% of the team, Yáñez appeared and it seemed good to us." Alcorcón's statement added, "We want to improve, we want to grow and we have to look to the outside for this growth." There "are not yet official figures about the price the team will be sold for" (EFE, 9/24).
