World News – US – Mayor de Blasio to decide on Mets sale in « the next few days »


Mayor Bill de Blasio has said he will announce if he plans to approve the sale of the Mets to funder Steven Cohen in the next few days after town lawyers complete a review of the agreement

« The city’s legal department is reviewing this transaction They’re doing their due diligence, » Hizzoner said Wednesday at a town hall press briefing

« I think they will be done very soon. By the time the legal department comes to a decision, we will announce it publicly for sure. So I would say a while in the next few days, » he added

De Blasio, an avowed Boston Red Sox fan, has the right to influence the ongoing sale by the Wlipon family as the Mets’ stadium, Citi Field, is on public land

Hizzoner’s approval was widely expected as a rubber stamp – but he was cautious of his intentions during a press briefing on Monday, and an insider told the Post that the heist could be linked to the fact that de Blasio wanted to « stick to billionaires »
