Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis wants to buy the San Paolo.
In Italy only Juventus own their stadium, while Udineseâ€™s Stadio Friuli is in the process of reconstruction in a similar deal, but the others are all rented from the local council on match days.
â€śMayor De Magistris said he was going to sell me the San Paolo, but I hope he does so for a symbolic sum,â€ť the President told Radio Kiss Kiss.
â€śThe decisive meeting will be on Tuesday. If I do not receive a reply, then I will go to Caserta and start building a new stadium there in January.
â€śI invested my money in Napoli, so with my money I want to do things properly. If I am to stay in Naples, I no longer want these Italian-style situations. Los Angeles is ready and waiting for me,â€ť added the film producer.
â€śI can stay in LA, you can sort your own football out in Naples and be happy. If I am to stay, seeing as I am a serious and rational person, then I want things to be done in a serious and rational manner. I wonâ€™t listen to anything else.
â€śI am given the San Paolo on match days, but I doubt the Naples council will be able to give me answers by Tuesday, considering the biblical slowness with which they do things here.â€ť
