Battle of the banks brewing

SAN FRANCISCO, CA The clash sets up a battle over who will win Charlotte, N.C.-based Wachovia.

The Citigroup deal would have been done with the help of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., but the Wells deal would be done without it. The head of the FDIC said the agency is standing behind the agreement it made with Citigroup.

Citigroup says its agreement with Wachovia provides that Wachovia will not enter into any transaction with any party other than Citi or negotiate with anyone else.
