KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — The ownership of the Kansas City Royals is open to the possibility of selling the franchise if the right buyer is found, two people familiar with the situation told The Associated Press, and reports suggest that it could happen in the near future.

The people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity Tuesday night because they were not authorized to discuss any negotiations given the sensitive nature of the situation.

The Athletic reported earlier Tuesday that Royals owner David Glass was in discussions with a group led by Kansas City native and Cleveland Indians vice chairman John Sherman. But the depth of those talks is unclear, and one person told the AP the club has been open to offers for some time.
