Biarritz president Jean-Baptiste Aldigé putting together Bordeaux takeover bid

Sud Ouest report that president of French rugby club Biarritz Olympique, Jean-Baptiste Aldigé, as well as Louis-Vincent Gave, are putting together an attempt to acquire cash-strapped Ligue 1 side Bordeaux.

Aldigé is being backed by investment group Gavekal, which Gave is the president of. They are a group based in Hong Kong that has worked with King Street before.

Aldigé has approached the Mayor of Bordeaux, Pierre Hurmic, about the possible deal, but Hurmic is sceptical of the bid owing to the difficult relationship that local authorities currently have with Biarritz and also because Aldigé would not be calling the shots if this takeover bid was successful.
