The purchase of Sampdoria by Sheikh Al-Thani is becoming more and more complicated. THE the spotlight is now on emissaries Francesco Di Silvio and Francesco Paolo Consul, which, according to Primo Canale, ended up in the sights of the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Rome for the hypothesis of attempted fraud. The couple of entrepreneurs were denounced by the Salernitana trustees Paolo Bertoli and Susanna Isgrò, in relation to their joint attempt to purchase the grenade club.
THE RECONSTRUCTION – In fact, it seems that the two have presented a surety letter from the “Italian branch of an important Austrian bank”, but the document presented by Toro Capital would have been null, because it was not recognized by the institute that issued it. The confirmation came from the legal office in Vienna, which contacted by the legal advisors of the Salernitana trustees had made it known that there was no Italian branch and no surety letter had been issued in favor of an unknown person.
THE EXTENSION – The Rome Public Prosecutor’s Office has started the preliminary investigations, and for this reason the prosecutor requested and obtained from the investigating judge an extension to verify the responsibility of the parties present in the consortium. After the necessary checks by the trustees, in Salerno there were anomalies concerning the “Console & Partners”, the company that according to its founder should act as a bridge for the purchase of Sampdoria. A role that Di Silvio says he gave him to Consul, who instead claims to have received it directly from the sheikh.
ANOMALIES – The fact is that, again according to what the Primo Canale portal reports, the last balance of the “Console & Partners” is from 2015. But there would be other anomalies: Consul, in fact, declares that he is not the owner of the Casale-club of Serie D in serious economic difficulties – which, however, was purchased by his group. Another yellow in the story of the transfer of the ownership of Sampdoria.
