Nov 2 (Reuters) - The following bids, mergers, acquisitions and disposals were reported by 2000 GMT on Monday:

** Visa Inc said it would buy former subsidiary Visa Europe Ltd for up to $23.3 billion in a deal that will give the world's largest payments network a chance to cut costs over the long term and raise fees in the second-biggest card market.

** Shire Plc has agreed to buy U.S. rare disease specialist Dyax Corp for about $5.9 billion - and potentially up to $6.5 billion - while still pursuing a five times larger unsolicited bid for Baxalta Inc.

** ConAgra Foods Inc said it would sell its private-label foods unit to TreeHouse Foods Inc for $2.7 billion, after struggling to turn around the business it acquired just two years ago.
