If you haven’t followed the story so far, Leeds United’s Andrea Radrizzani has been rumoured as being interested in purchasing Serie C Palermo.
The club, who were relegated back to Serie D due to financial and insurance issues a couple of years ago, have been put on the market by their owner Dario Mirri, and a few suitors have emerged.
Among those is the Leeds owner, who would be ‘interested in coming forward’, with other being current Sampdoria president Massimo Ferrero.
This is according to MF Milan & Finanza, a weekly business magazine, and relayed by I Love Palermo Calcio.
According to them, ‘there would have already been a dialogue’ with the Leeds owner, while the interest of Ferrero ‘could be more concrete’.
In fact, the latter ‘would be carefully watching the developments of the Sicilian club with the intention, should the conditions be right, of making an offer of 100% of the company’.
That Radrizzani has already spoken to Mirri is already well known, with their meeting in Milan documented a few days ago.
Things had gone a bit quiet since, but this will only rekindle the rumours of the Leeds businessman wanting to branch out to other clubs, hoping to replicate his Elland Road success elsewhere.
