MILAN, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Real-estate manager Prelios , which is rushing to find cash to pay its hefty debt, has agreed to start exclusive bid talks with Feidos, an Italian consortium led by real estate entrepreneur Massimo Caputi, a source close to the board told Reuters.
Prelios has chosen Feidos over U.S. fund Fortress , which had also expressed interest in the loss-making Italian group.
Prelios, which manages properties in Italy and Germany, has been hit by writedowns on its property investments in recession-hit Italy.
