Having acquired full ownership of Leeds United in 2017, Andrea Radrizzani has since made public his desire to buy another club.
“The City [Football Group] and Red Bull models are very different; they have clubs in different continents. I don’t think that’s what I want to do,” he told Sports Pro Media last year.
“I want to do something much more integrated on the football side so there’s no big gap between the level of football quality between these clubs.”
The Premier League side’s chairman has given a detailed interview to Italian newspaper La Repubblica and they asked if he still has a desire to takeover a new club, and if that new club could be from Italy.
Responding to that, the Whites chief said: “Yes, Or in another European country. And this time I would like [for] a great club.”
Inter Milan are owned by the Suning Holdings Group and earlier reports coming out of the Italian media suggested the Nerazzurri’s current owners could be looking to sell.
La Repubblica pointed out to Radrizzani that in Milan, one of the two clubs could be looking for a new owner, given the situation of the Chinese owners of the team led by Antonio Conte.
“There was nothing, if that’s what you want to know. But an interest exists, let’s see how Suning’s plans evolve,” the Leeds chairman explained.
“On the other side, Elliott has improved the management of Milan, but as you say sooner or later, he will sell. In Europe there are three clubs that have great development opportunities: the two from Milan and Atlético Madrid.”
With Radrizzani now admitting that he has an interest in Inter Milan, the comments from the Leeds United owner are spreading quickly around the Italian media.
