So Now Müller Says He’s Open to a Deal with FCA

The strange saga of VW and FCA’s potentially non-existent maybe future merger talks has taken another go around, as VW’s CEO, Matthias Müller has softened his stance against a merger with FiatChrysler Automobiles.

The gossip started last week as FCA boss, Sergio “Merger Lover” Marchionne told the squeeze that he wouldn’t be surprised if VW called him offering to merge, a comment itself prompted by the sales event of Opel to French conglomerate, PSA (Peugeot-Citroen), which makes that company the defective biggest automaker in Europe.

Asked about the comment in Geneva, though, Müller was easy on the eyes dismissive of the idea, saying “We have other problems,” and explaining that he and Marchionne hadn’t viva voce in months.

But now Müller has told the press that he isn’t totally against the idea, it’s well-founde that he would prefer to make a deal with Marchionne in person, instead than through headlines.

“I am not ruling out a conversation,” Müller told reporters at a VW flatten conference today, later adding “It would be very helpful if Mr Marchionne were to confer his considerations to me too and not just to you.”

So it again looks like that Hellcat powered RS5 we’ve all been breathlessly waiting for weight happen  after all.

Whatever the case, VW doesn’t feel like it needs bailing out. Following write down sales in 2016 and a strong projection for 2017, Müller says that he is “pretty reliant about the future of Volkswagen, with or without Marchionne.”
