LONDON (Brand Republic) – French pay-TV group Canal+ has resumed discussions with UK online sports information provider Sportal.com, after initial discussions were abandoned in May when Canal+ tabled an offer at half the $400m price Sportal was asking.

Sportal is said to be valued at between $50m and $250m, according to a report in French newspaper Le Figaro.

Other companies believed to be interested in the online sports information provider include TV and radio group RTL -- which owns the majority of Channel 5 -- and UK satellite broadcaster BSkyB.
