But there were rumours that AEG wanted to sell Berlin and Hamburg arenas and clubs in recent years.

PS:

Maybe KHL can get Berlin. They are not very popular in Germany because the club is originally from Eastern Germany and it was the official team of the Stasi (State Security) (official name was SG Dynamo Berlin) + the league is boring with all the titles for Berlin. Not few fans would be happy see them leave.
I agree with BalticWarrior about bussiness/nationality.

AEG as company does not care about KHL-NHL rivarly... if KHL was interesting for AEG (make profit), AEG would buy KHL team. Believe me.

Americans and Russians always agree each other if bussiness is good for both. If the price for O2 in Berlin is good for AEG, the deal can happen.

Bold part is very important and interesting thing ....

Would be great if you inform us about rumours in future. Will be fun to follow it.
