Andrea Radrizzani may well have come to the end of his patience regarding a Salernitana takeover, report Calciomercato.
The club is owned by Claudio Lotito, who also owns Lazio, and given Serie A rules mean someone can’t own two sides in the competition, Salernitana’s promotion to the top flight means a sale is needed.
Calciomercato report there were a couple of offers on Friday night, ‘above all’ from the Leeds United boss, but Lotito continues to reject them.
Radrizzani was willing to increase his latest offer and wanted to pay part of the purchase cost at the end of the coming season, perhaps linked to the club staying in Serie A. Lotito was almost tempted, according to the report, but then decided against it and gave a straight ‘No’.
Seemingly tired by the whole process, it’s explained the Italian businessman ‘no longer seems interested’. There’s every chance he could come back into the picture, though.
Should a deal go through then Leeds United and Salernitana could work in a similar way to Watford and Udinese, with the latter two owned by the Pozzo family. Transfers are frequent between the pair and the link has helped both clubs, and their accounts, on repeat occasions.
