(Football) Cagliari owner says sale falling through
(06-05 19:18)

Cagliari president Massimo Cellino says the sale of the Serie A club to an American consortium appears to have fallen through as he has yet to receive any money.
Cellino announced an agreement last month after a meeting in Miami with Luca Silvestrone, a representative of the investors who have not been publicly identified.
However, in Thursday's edition of regional newspaper L'Unione Sarda, Cellino says "I haven't heard from anyone or seen any money since the agreement. ... I always thought Silvestrone just represented himself.''
Cellino, who recently took over Leeds, has been in charge at Cagliari for 22 years but has been frustrated in his efforts to build a new stadium for the Sardinian club.
He remains keen to sell.
Cagliari was set to become the third club in Italy's top tier to be under foreign ownership. --AP
