BMW is talking with many potential buyers of the Rover brand name - including two Chinese auto manufacturers - but has not concluded any deal yet, it told Reuters on Tuesday.

China's SAIC Motor Corp and Nanjing Auto are both interested in getting the rights to the Rover name that reverted to BMW with the insolvency of British carmaker MG Rover a year ago, the report noted.

"We are still in discussions with several parties, two of them being SAIC and Nanjing, but no agreement has been reached," a BMW spokesman told the news agency. He could not say when a deal was expected.
