Marlins Owner Jeffrey Loria Reportedly Has 'Handshake Agreement' To Sell Club

The Dodgers eventually sold for a record $2 billion; later that year, the San Diego Padres, the last team to transfer ownership, sold for $800 million.

This price tag itself seemed exceptionally high considering the very same report indicated that the Marlins' franchise worth stood at just $675 million.

Back in 2002, Loria spent a relatively mere $158 million to acquire the Florida-based team. Kushner's son, Jared, is a senior adviser to President Trump. Ozanian says he has sources claiming team president David Samson has said there is a "handshake agreement" on the sale.

Charles Kushner in 1985, focuses on Manhattan real estate. "The Commissioner's officer has not heard directly or indirectly of any conversation involving Charles Kushner".

Aguero says Man City future to be decided at end of season
Guardiola has preferred a 4-3-3 formation this term, meaning Aguero and recruit Jesus are vying for the lead striking role. "He's got plenty of years left and signed a new contract but, as you know, that means nothing".

According to Mike Ozanian at Forbes, there is reportedly a "handshake agreement" in place to sell the Marlins.

A stumbling block to the proposed sale, according to Forbes' sources, is that the person who made the offer is a real-estate developer based in New York City who lacks the liquidity to come up with the cash (vs. borrowed money) that Major League Baseball typically requires of a potential buyer. That means the buyer may have to take on more debt in order to complete the purchase, something Major League Baseball could flag as problematic.

If the deal goes through, it would be just behind the record $2 billion Guggenheim Baseball Management paid to acquire the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2012, almost $1 billion more than the previous record for a sports franchise. But he will start making at least $25 annually in 2018.
