Napoli president De Laurentiis: Does Liverpool and Roma have same owner?

Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis has blasted Roma for selling Alisson Becker to Liverpool.

Brazil international Alisson joined the Reds for £65million last month - a then world record fee for a goalkeeper.

De Laurentiis told the Gazzetta dello Sport: “Roma? They changed a lot and I don't know if that's good.

“I wouldn't have sold Alisson, not even for €100million. I had offered €60million for him but Roma didn't want to sell him to me.

“I always have the doubt that the real owner of Roma is also that of Liverpool.

"A little bird told me in the ear a few years ago but if that were so these two teams would not be able to compete in the Champions League."
