The famous couple formed by “J. and A. Rod” has already expressed interest in buying the team a couple of months, according to local media, and sources close to the matter under anonymity, told Variety that both are working on the issue with an executive of investment banking in north America.
The New York Mets are owned by the Wilpon family, which in December announced that it was negotiating to sell the 80 % of the team to one of its shareholders for a value of 2,600 million dollars under the premise of retaining control during the first five years, but the agreement is not finally closed.

Another source close to the negotiations, and partner with JPMorgan said to the newspaper New York Post that their intention to buy the baseball franchise is “real”, and this past march, Rodriguez said in an interview with the host Jimmy Fallon that “he would study” the “opportunity” if it is present.
Even if the shareholder previously interested in the Mets, Steve Cohen, is not ruled out as a buyer, the Wilpon family, which bought the team in 2002 by 391 million, now plans to sell the equipment at auction and without preconditions, according to the Post.
The net combo of Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez stands at around 700 million dollars, a figure considerably lower than that handled by the shareholder Cohen and the owners of the Mets, the team that has annual losses of about 50 million.
