Turin, Salernitana and now Sampdoria: these are the three clubs that Francesco Consul has tried to take over. The last two with Francesco Di Silvio
Three attempts to climb a club of A leagueall three with different roles and modalities, saw the protagonist Francis Console. In 2020 he started contacts with Urban Cairo to deal with the transfer of the Turin. In the background, as he told Tuttosport in those months, a declaration of intent had been received in Cairo by an investor of the United Arab Emirates. There was talk of a Luxembourg fund (Toro Capital) identified by Consul and his entrepreneurs as a financial vehicle to conduct the sale and on which the money would be collected to storm the grenade club.
Blurred this negotiation, Consul e Francesco Di Silvio in 2021 they attempted to climb the Salerno. Contacts with the trustees are close Susanna Isgrò And Paolo Bertoli. Toro Capital’s offer, amounting to forty million euros, was formalized on the letterhead of the Virtuoses, one of the film producer’s companies. The dispute over the lack of bank guarantees and the entry of Danilo Iervolino on the scene they have waned the possibility of buying the grenade club. Today they try again with Sampdoria and, by the same admission of the Consul, it is again Bull Capital the vehicle company to the acquisition of the Sampdoria club. Relations with Di Silvio are excellent: it still remains to be understood whose initiative it was to “pull in” Consul in the Sampdoria operation. The escrow agent claims, as it points out The XIX Centurythat the assignment came directly from the family Al Thani while the film producer claims to have chosen him and Simone Servetti as Advisor.
