Massimo Ferrero has reportedly sold Sampdoria to a consortium led by Gianluca Vialli for €140m.
According to Il Secolo XIX, Ferrero made the revelation to his fellow Serie A Presidents during a meeting at the League’s offices on Saturday.
“I sold Sampdoria for €140m,” he is quoted as telling them.
The film producer would have negotiated a sale to Vialli and his group of investors, which includes Jamie Dinan and Alex Knaster.
Gazzetta dello Sport has since validated the newspaper’s story, claiming that a deal is ready to be finalised.
The Blucerchiati have been busy in the summer transfer window but have not done any business since signing Jeison Murillo two weeks ago.
