Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mario Balotelli, Yaya Toure, Sebastian Giovinco, and Alex Teixeira are among the possible signings targeted by Vasco da Gama presidential candidate Luiz Roberto Leven Siano.
High-profile additions to the play team are among the ambitious Leven’s ideas. He aims to win ownership of the club at November’s scheduled polls, has placed out to turn around the fortunes of a company that has failed this year to pay salaries.
He also aims to collect $400 million in six years as part of the ‘Somamos’ programme, rebuild the Sao Januario and expand capacity to 55,000, boost membership to record-breaking rates and purchase clubs in Europe and China.
Leven appears to have worked with Fabio Cordella, the Italian entrepreneur and sporting director, as well as with Mino Raiola, whose clients include Ibrahimovic and Balotelli.
“We are negotiating, seeking to build the Vasco of our dreams,” Leven told in an interview.
