Il Sole 24 Ore reports that advisers working on the plan to sell the lender may be preparing for a deal that includes more than one buyer. UniCredit may be wary of buying the entire bank they said, and would prefer to be one of several buyers with Banco BPM, BPER and Poste Italiane named as other interested entities.
