FIGC Reject Lazio President Lotito’s Proposal to Sell Salernitana to a Trust

The FIGC has rejected Lazio president Claudio Lotito’s proposal to sell Salernitana to a trust.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero earlier today, the Italian football federation evaluated Lotito’s plans for three days before rejecting the proposal. Due to this, Salernitana’s registration to Serie A has been frozen for the moment.

Further developments are expected later today and over the coming days, with Lotito now having to find a new solution.

Various parties are interested in acquiring the newly promoted Serie A side, including Leeds United owner Andrea Radrizzani and UAE Sheikh Khaled Zayed Bin Saquer Zayed Al Nayhan.

These offers will have to be further explored now by Lotito, as otherwise Salernitana risk missing out on Serie A, as the rules clearly specify that the Biancocelesti president cannot own two professional clubs in the same division.

Salernitana finished second in Serie B this season, winning automatic promotion to the Italian topflight.
