Rumours intensified on Friday that MCI Worldcom was moving closer to a takeover of Nextel Communications, after the two have reportedly been in talks for some time.
While the negotiations have so far apparently stumbled on price, Nextel is believed to be holding a board meeting with MCI Worldcom officials on Saturday.
Any deal is expected to involve an all stock transaction.
