De Laurentiis to buy second football club

Aurelio De Laurentiis NapoliThe Corriere dello Sport are reporting owner will buy a second football club as a farm team and feeder club for the Partenopei.

The system will help the club cultivate talent from other countries and allow players to gain significant first team action before being brought to Napoli or sold to other clubs for a profit.

This is the same system currently used by Udinese, whose owner Giampaolo Pozzo, own Spanish side Granada and English Championship squad Watford. This past season both clubs had numerous Udinese owned players in their sides on loan, and De Laurentiis is hoping he can do the same with Napoli.

The Corriere dello Sport reports the team will either be based in Europe in or the USA, and like Udinese, would give Napoli an upper-hand in the development and scouting of players.
