The luxury brand has inked a four-seasons tie-up with the Spanish club.
The designer said his actions were misinterpreted.
Dubbed “The $kull,” the perfume is a pricey teaser of what the German designer has in mind for the beauty division of his namesake brand.
The team is owned by former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi.
The Dubai-based Damac property developer, which partnered with Cavalli on a hotel project last October, and the American Infinity Group, which has experience in consumer goods, are said to also be looking at the brand before the June 14 deadline to submit offers.
The papers revealed that, in addition to Bluestar Alliance, OTB and Philipp Plein, others that showed interest in the acquisition included Style Capital SGR SpA, Marquee Brands with English fund OpCapita LLC and Interparfums Inc.
Unions have announced a strike will take place on April 1.
Sources say Philipp Plein has distanced himself from negotiations as Paul Surridge on Friday no longer listed his role as creative director of the brand on his Instagram account.
