Germany’s professional football body is getting ready to restart talks with private equity firms about the sale of a package of media rights, people familiar with the matter said.

Deutsche Fussball Liga GmbH is likely to agree on the resumption of discussions about the sale of a stake in a new subsidiary housing broadcast rights at a regular meeting in early February, according to the people. DFL is considering including both its domestic and international rights in any deal, they said.
