Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) chief Elon Musk has retained Morgan Stanley as an adviser in his controversial move to take the electric carmaker private, media reports said on Thursday.

Charles Gasparino of Fox Business New tweeted about the move by Musk, who has been besieged ever since he announced the plan to take the company private earlier in August.

Having earlier hired Goldman Sachs and now Morgan Stanley, Musk has retained the services of the two top merger advisers in the US, according to Bloomberg.
