George Clooney is interested in purchasing Malaga for $108 million, according to reports in Spain.
Clooney is reportedly interested in filming an Amazon series surrounding the club, and wants to turn the region into the "European Hollywood."
"There is a powerful production company here in Málaga, they want to turn Málaga into the 'European Hollywood' and they are filming series here on the south coast for Amazon and are already negotiating with the club. However, they do not want to pay the crazy sum Al-Thani is asking for. A fortnight ago, he was asking 100 million euros for Málaga. What they are prepared to offer is much more than the amount he paid for the club (36 million euros) and talks are ongoing," said Small Shareholders Association president Antonio Aguilera.
Malaga are currently in 14th place in Spain's second division.
