Reports in Spain link Talk Talk, Liberty Global and Sky with O2 purchase

O2 are being eyed at by Talk Talk, Liberty Global and Sky, according to reports in Spain.

The stories come just a day after Three’s owners Hutchinson Whampoa were rumoured to be in talks about a possible acquisition of O2.

Sky and TalkTalk were both put forward by newspaper Cinco Dias as being in talks with O2’s owners Telefonica over a potential purchase of the UK operator.

Meanwhile, El Economista suggested that Liberty Global and Talk Talk had been showing an interest in buying O2.

Whilst Sky have long been rumoured to be looking at the mobile space, Talk Talk would appear to be an unlikely bidder. The quad player recently purchased Tesco’s broadband and fixed line customer bases along with the supermarkets video streaming service Blinkbox.

The purchase of O2 would certainly strengthen the Liberty Global brand, although the firm itself has been linked with a sale to Vodafone.
