The negotiations for the cession of the Sampdoria seem to have finally arrived at a dead end, after the withdrawal announced yesterday by CalcioInvest. A decision that has not gone down to Massimo Ferrero – willing to proceed by legal proceedings – but dictated by very specific reasons. Today's edition of Il Secolo XIX explains how yesterday, early morning, Fausto Zanetton he called Gianluca Vidal, accountant of viperetta, to clarify how the final offer of the Vialli group would have been on the downside: for its part, Vidal has made it known that its mandate did not envisage a negotiation based on figures lower than those established (a range from 75 to 82 million).
This is how CalcioInvest retired, coming from the upper floors, or from the two magnates Alex Knaster and James Dinan: they would have said enough, while Vialli and Zanetton would have wanted to try until the last to save the operation. The umpteenth disagreement between the parties is derived from that "Sport risk" that it could have gone to increase a debt exposure already considered borderline: given the disastrous start to the championship and the situation in the standings, the Italian-American consortium assessed that they would be needed in the market major investments to equip the rose adequately. That ten million or so, in short, have been deducted from the offer destined to Ferrero, and in this way the gap between demand and supply has widened further. In this stalemate, the only faint hope for reopening negotiations lies in the hypothesis that Ferrero can accept the conditions dictated by the Vialli group.
