Disney joins companies including Comcast looking to buy a piece of the Murdoch family's empire.

Iger is well regarded on Wall Street for transforming Disney with the acquisitions of Pixar, Marvel Studios and "Star Wars" producer Lucasfilm.

Among the assets Disney would acquire in the Fox deal include cable networks National Geographic and FX, Fox Networks Group and its worldwide divisions (excluding the Fox broadcast channel), an extra 30% stake in Hulu, 50% of Endemol Shine Group, a 39% stake in Sky and control of Indian pay TV service Star TV.

The Murdochs - Rupert Murdoch, 86, and his sons James and Lachlan, Fox's executive chairman - are considering a sale as the market values the group behind more slowly growing peers.

Sampaoli: "Nos han tocado rivales con mucho entusiasmo"
Sé que tengo al mejor del mundo, al mejor de la historia, un gran grupo y vamos a hacer un gran papel". Tenemos que aprovechar el tiempo para mejorar.

Shares in Sky, which is 39 per cent owned by 21st Century Fox, rose 2.4 per cent to 952p in early trading after both The Times and The Financial Times reported talks were back on.

A deal with Disney might overcome some of those challenges.

The deal, which would include Fox's movie assets and part of its TV assets, could be sealed as soon as next week, according to reports by CNBC.

As per the information given by the insider, Fox will fix the deal by the end of the year.
