Magna is going to get GM Europe
Canadian car parts maker Magna International is the preferred bidder for GM Europe, owner of Opel and Vauxhall, Lord Mandelson has said.
The UK business secretary said a deal between Magna and GM was very near.
He was speaking after reports that Magna had reached an agreement in principle to rescue GM Europe.
The other potential bidder, Fiat, did not attend Friday’s talks with the German government, saying Berlin’s position was "unreasonable".
GM in the US is expected to declare Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Monday.
