Sunderland co-owner Juan Sartori is attempting to find backers and takeover the club outright, according to Sun reporter Alan Nixon as per Sunderland Echo.
Pressure is firmly on the shoulders of current Black Cats owner Stewart Donald to find a buyer for the club after some highly controversial moments in charge which have been largely documented via Netflix series Sunderland Til I Die.
However, a latest report has now claimed that Sartori, who arrived at the Stadium of Light two years ago to assist Donald, is looking to find financial backers to assist with his takeover from Donald.
Sartori currently holds a 20% stake in the former Premier League club and the report goes on to add that he wants to increase that and purchase Donald’s share.
Having arrived at Sunderland in 2018, the Uruguayan previously made his finances through a farming company in his native homeland.
This report may not go down to well with Sunderland fans but has Sartori been afforded any sort of power over the last two years?
Whoever comes in to takeover Sunderland simply has to stop with the false promises and deliver, and it will be a gamble to see if Sartori can do that.
