American fund interested in Napoli acquistion

An American fund is interested in buying Serie A side Napoli but Aurelio de Laurentiis is yet to make up his mind about the future of the club.

La Gazzetta dello Sport claim that Napoli could soon receive purchase requests from other entities interested in taking over the company. Among the funds, Sixth Street would be ready to seriously evaluate the purchase of the Partenopei, through one of its funds and their aim is to construct a new stadium for the club.

De Laurentiis, for his part, has not yet decided whether to sell and evaluate the company at least €700 million, because even if he does not own real estate, the potential of the Napoli brand remains high.

The president, beyond the qualification in the Champions League, must evaluate well what he will want to do with the club which he took over from bankruptcy in the summer of 2004 for €31 million and led them from Serie C to having a constant presence in European football. Among other things, the De Laurentiis family by the summer of 2024, to comply with federal rules, will have to decide whether to sell Napoli or Bari.
