OAKLAND CA- JUNE 13 Derek Jeter #2 of the New York Yankees warms up before their game against the Oakland Athletics

According to a report by the Fox Business Network, there are three groups that are interested in buying the Marlins, and Jeter's group happens to be one of them. The story states Jeter is represented in negotiations with Marlins president David Samson by veteran Wall Street executive and former Morgan Stanley brokerage chief Gregory Fleming. But Stanton said he did get to know Jeter when the Yankees and Marlins played an exhibition series in Panama in 2014, and Stanton is well aware of Jeter's success as a player. According to Fox Business, former New York Yankees captain Derek Jeter and former Florida governor Jeb Bush were two contenders in buying the team. This group involves a number of businessmen who have gained financial backing from Goldman Sachs (GS), which has one of the best investment banking franchises with a focus on sports.

Derek Jeter, who played his fair share of games in South Florida over 20 seasons with the Yankees, could be the Marlins' next owner. Forbes estimated in the report that the Marlins would be sold for $1.6 billion.

Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria has expressed interest in selling since late previous year.

The Kushner family, whose scion Jared Kushner is a close adviser to President Trump, showed interest in purchasing the franchise in February but pulled out due to Loria's potential ambassadorship to France after the sale.

In response to the most recent report, Loria would not offer a comment on the supposed interest of Bush and Jeter. Even the Marlins, a team that draws more flies than fans.

Additionally, 2012's GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney was thought to have been considering taking a shot at buying the franchise with a group of people, according to sources who have been involved in sales talks.

"There's obviously a lot of buzz - there are rumors", Samson said.

"I asked if he wanted to coach, and he's like, 'Never.'"
