Ever since Paris Saint-Germain was in the hands of Qatari owners, the club from the French capital has joined the European leaders. It is possible that another member of the local royal family will soon invest in the Serie A team – Sampdoria Genoa.
The team, whose colors for many seasons has been represented by, inter alia, Bartosz Bereszyński, are not among the leaders of Serie A. Sampdoria is much closer to the fight for relegation, but this may soon change.
According to the Italian news agency ANSA, one of the members of the Qatari royal family, Khalid Faleh al Thani, is interested in buying the club. However, he is not more closely related to the owners of PSG.
Katarczyk’s partners are to be the film director Francesco Di Silvio, and the former footballer Ivano Bonetti. Di Silvio confirmed his participation in the entire operation in a special letter.
– I discovered the beautiful city of Genoa, the wonderful Sampdoria jersey, I was told about the glorious history of the club. I fell in love with the city and Sampdoria so I decided to buy it. We hope to reach an agreement as soon as possible Di Silvio said.
Sampdoria has been struggling financially since the club’s president and owner, Massimo Ferrero, was arrested. This took place in December 2021. Since then, the search for a new investor has been carried out.
The Genoa team started the 2022/2023 season very badly. In the first seven matches, she did not have a single victory. With two points on his account, he is placed last in the league table.
