Montreal Impact owner Joey Saputo buys Bologna FC with Joe Tacopina

News from Italy confirm that Bologna FC has been bought by Joe Tacopina and Joey Saputo

Il Resto Del Carlino

A Joe Tacopina - Joey Saputo partnership seems to be a fruitful partnership as the ex-AS Roma vice president is slotted to go back to Bologna next Monday to finalize the deal. Bologna FC shareholders agreed to terms with Tacopina-Saputo as follows

  • € 6,3M to buy the club
  • €6M to raise the stock before Oct 15
More details from Tony Marinaro pertaining to a new stadium and Marco Di Vaio's role.

The battle to buy the club seemed lost after current Bologna President promised to inject more funds into the club and pushing away the Tacopina-Saputo bid. But The Rosso Blu will be associated with the bleu-blanc-noir for the foreseeable future.

Tacopina will be back in Bologna on Monday to finalize the deal. No news whether Joey Saputo will be with him or not.
