The publisher of Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper is interested in buying Yahoo! Inc.’s media and news properties, according to a person familiar with the matter, and is in talks to join with potential bidders who would carve up the U.S. Internet company.

“Discussions are at a very early stage,” a representative for Daily Mail said Monday in an e-mailed statement. “There is no certainty that any transaction will take place.”
