Andrea Radrizzani is evaluating the possibility of taking over three new clubs alongside Leeds United after their return to the Premier League.
The Whites chairman believes it would benefit Leeds if he was to use his relationships in Europe, with clubs in Spain, Italy and Portugal part of the vision.
Radrizzani claims any new club he purchased would work in synergy with the Elland Road club, as they look to establish themselves in the Premier League.
Radrizzani wants to expand Aser’s portfolio, which also saw the creation of Eleven Sports which has gone from strength-to-strength.
“There are countries where I have a good, really strong relationship in the football industry and where I could make sense to have maybe the ownership of a club and be in synergy with Leeds,” he told AP News.
“We are in a phase of evaluating opportunity, particularly Italy, Spain and Portugal. And I have this vision to have maybe a network of two, three clubs and Leeds on the top of these in the Premier League, where the other clubs can create synergy and develop players that can benefit also Leeds.”
This doesn’t come as a massive shock.
Radrizzani was named by Sky Italy as a majority shareholder in a group that made a proposal to buy Serie A side Genoa recently, months after he came out to deny any interest.
This could be his first major move as he looks to expand his empire in the football world, and why wouldn’t he?
Take a look at Manchester City owner, Sheik Mansour.
Yes, he is obviously worth much more money, but he owns 10 senior men teams across the world, including one in India.
Their annual income is out of this world and if Radrizzani gets this right, it could benefit Leeds massively, and the Italian hasn’t made many mistakes yet at Elland Road.
