FRANKFURT, Feb 26 (Reuters) - U.S. investor Cerberus, which holds stakes in Deutsche Bank and Commerzbank, favours a merger between the two lenders, a German newspaper reported on Tuesday.
Handelsblatt, citing unnamed people familiar with the matter, said Cerberus had initially been against a merger but had changed its mind.
Commerzbank and Deutsche Bank declined to comment. Cerberus was not immediately available for comment. (Reporting by Tom Sims Editing by Edmund Blair)
