Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani and partner Manfredi put £65m on table to buy SampdoriaLeeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani and his partner Manfredi have put £65million on the table to buy Italian club Sampdoria.
According to Napoli Magazine, the duo were in Genoa on 22 May to have a meeting with Marco Lanna, president of Sampdoria.
After visiting the Bogliasco sports centre, the Leeds owner went to the Luigi Ferraris Stadium where he stayed for about half an hour with Manfredi.
It seemed like if Leeds were going to get relegated, Radrizzani may decide to stay put another year and get them back to the Premier League.
This would mean that he would regain the valuation of a top-flight club and would not have to sell the club at a lower price.
However, by the looks of things, he’s got a decent amount of money to buy another club and that could mean that he’s going to sell Leeds regardless of what happens.
The timing does seem strange given the fact that one of his clubs is in the midst of an intense relegation battle and it’s the final week of the season.
He surely could’ve made all these decisions and conducted the meetings post 28 May.
It’s interesting to see what transpires and even if Leeds go down, most fans will want next season in the Championship to be under a new ownership regime.
