Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani ready to invest £65m immediately to buy Sampdoria

Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani appears to be amplifying his pursuit to buy Serie A club Sampdoria as he looks to diversify his footballing portfolio.

According to Club Doria 46 [23 May], he has been spotted at the Bogliasco Sports Centre in Genoa and is said to have met with the Sampdoria hierarchy this week.

He along with his partner Matteo Manfredi plan to bring the Serie A club back on track and help take them to the next level.

Out of Leeds then?

One would assume that this means Radrizzani is one step closer to leaving Leeds for good and he could cash in this summer.

Relegation is certainly going to slash the club’s valuation maybe even by half but he needs to invest again next season to make them competitive for promotion.

He could very well call it a day and negotiate with the San Francisco 49ers and move out for good and put all his attention on Sampdoria.

He is known to be a hands on owner and has interacted with fans on numerous occasions and keeps visiting Elland Road for games.

Leeds fans would also like to see the back of him as the feeling is that he’s taken the club as far as he could and needs to step back before all his good work goes in vain.

It’s interesting to see how his Leeds future transpires if he does go ahead and complete the Sampdoria takeover.

In other Leeds United news, Phil Hay claims that an international player at Elland Road has no place at the club next season and a summer transfer is on the cards.
