Indebted casino operator MGM Mirage has hired Morgan Stanley to advise on selling some of its operations and is talking with potential buyers, according Reuters.

The report, citing a source familiar with the situation, says that the funds raised will go to make debt payments and also pay for the troubled CityCenter project it owns with Dubai World.

The bank is also speaking with lenders to refinance debt, the source said.

The properties for sale include the MGM Grand Detroit and the Beau Rivage, the source added.
