Sir Philip Green is planning to sell all or part of his Arcadia Group empire to the Chinese, The Sunday Times reveals. The 65-year-old billionaire owner of Topshop is believed to be in talks with Shandong Ruyi, a Chinese textiles giant that has been rapidly expanding into European fashion. The Guardian says in a follow-up negotiating an elegant departure will not be easy for Green, particularly as his every move is under scrutiny following the collapse of BHS in 2016. Green should explain how pensioners will be protected in any sale of Arcadia, MPs have warned – and regulators should have the power to stop the deal until savers have had a say, The Telegraph says this morning.
