Rockets owner Les Alexander is in the final stages of negotiations to purchase the Dynamo and secure the 30-year lease and development agreement on new BBVA Compass Stadium, multiple Major League Soccer sources have told the Chronicle.
The deal is not 100 percent complete, but the sides are very close, according to two officials with MLS. Phil Anschutz’s Anschutz Entertainment Group, Oscar de la Hoya and Mexican billionaire Gabriel Brener are the current owners of the Dyanamo. AEG owns 50 percent and the other two 25 percent each.
AEG president Tim Leiweke’s spokesman Mike Roth declined to comment on the negotiations with Alexander.
With the purchase of the Dynamo, Alexander would control the only professional sports franchises to win major sports titles in Houston history
