Lazio President Lotito Has a Plan for the Sale of Newly Promoted Salernitana

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has a plan for the sale of the newly promoted Salernitana.

As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, rumours are circulating that Lotito could sell his 50% shares in the club to an investment fund, with his brother-in-law and co-owner Marco Mezzaroma’s shares dropping to 49%.

A new board of directors would then be formed with a new majority, leaving Lotito with no decision-making power. The alternative would be a trust with the appointment of a trustee.

It’s not clear though if these ideas would be accepted by the Italian football federation, the Regional Administrative Court (TAR) or CONI.

Lotito has until the 25th of June to sell the Campania outfit, which is valued at around €70-80 million, as he’s not allowed to own two professional clubs playing in the same division.

Salernitana are returning to Serie A after a 23-year long absence.
