Lazio president Claudio Lotito is ready to sell his 50% share of the newly promoted Salernitana.
As reported by Italian radio broadcaster Radiosei (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) earlier today, the Italian businessman is working tirelessly to sell his share before the 25th of June, the imposed deadline by the Italian football federation.
Lotito has seemingly found a solution; He is ready to sell his 50% share of Salernitana to a foreign investment fund.
Regarding the position of his brother-in-law Marco Mezzaroma, he is considering the possibility of dropping his shares down to only 49%, with Lotito leaving the club entirely. This would still be allowed under the rules, as Mezzaroma would not have a controlling stake in the club.
Lotito purchased Salernitana in 2011 after the club’s bankruptcy. He guided them to Serie B after a few years, but the club’s unexpected promotion to Serie A means that he is now forced to sell the Campania outfit.
