Hedge fund manager David Tepper has agreed to buy the Panthers from team founder Jerry Richardson, two people familiar with the situation said Tuesday.

A source confirmed to ESPN that the Panthers will be sold for $2.2 billion.

The source confirmed that the Panthers will be sold for $2.2 billion, which will set a record for the highest sale price for an National Football League team.

In fact, the finalization of the sale of the Carolina Panthers should not be an issue.

Tepper, who is the founder of Appaloosa Management, bought the team from anywhere between $2.1 and $2.5 billion.

Tepper is a minority owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, Tepper would have to sell his minority ownership stake of the Steelers, per league rules.

The best part about this news, of course, is that the team is staying in Carolina.

Despite his anti-Trump stance, the billionaire hedge fund manager is not exactly a clear liberal as he started out supporting former President Barack Obama in 2008, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in '12 and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in '16.

He donated $3 million over the year to help with hurricane relief in Puerto Rico and Texas. "They remind me of my original hometown, Pittsburgh", Tepper told the Charlotte Observer in April. He would spend time with Goldman Sachs before setting out on his own.
