    If Silver Lake brokers Yahoo deal, don't you think there will be a data center deal for Silver Lake?

    WSJ writes on Silver Lake brokering a purchase of Yahoo.

    Private-equity firm Silver Lake Partners is working with one of its investors, the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, and Microsoft Corp. to put together a proposal to buy Yahoo Inc., people familiar with the matter said.Under the proposal being discussed, Microsoft would put up several billion dollars of funding, with additional financing being arranged by banks, the people said. Silver Lake and the CPP Investment Board would kick in the rest of the amount, which would be less than what Microsoft contributes, the people said.

    Now, if Silver Lake is smart which they are. Don't you think there is a good chance that there is a data center deal in there somewhere?

    Another deal scenario being discussed by interested parties is a complex, multipart bid for Yahoo led by Alibaba, where the Chinese company gets back Yahoo's 40% stake and sells Yahoo's U.S. assets to private equity, according to people familiar with the matter. A transaction can be structured in a way that avoids heavy tax bills on a sale of assets, they added.
