Leeds United owner Massimo Cellino is reportedly looking into buying an Italian club.

A report in The Sun (21/8) page 64, states Cellino is exploring the idea.

While the report does not explicitly say Cellino is looking to sell Leeds, buying a club in Italy would have implications for the Whites, and surely lead to him selling up.

Cellino has not thrown major investment at Leeds, with their most expensive signing under him £3 million, and they still rent their own stadium.

It is not likely he would viable be able to run two clubs successfully.

Cellino has previously hinted at his unhappiness at Leeds, with the club failing to move forward since his 2014 takeover.

The Italian previously owned Serie A side Cagliari who he sold ahead of taking over Leeds.

It was at Cagliari where he forged his reputation as a 'manager eater', and he has continued to hire and fire at Leeds.
