Roma edge closer to US takeover

Roma may soon find themselves under US ownership as officials of their owners UniCredit have flown to New York to try and strike a deal.
Roma president Rosella Sensi has had a long relationship with the Club, however, this is now soon to be at an end but Sensi wished the best for Roma. Speaking to Italian channel Radio2 she said “I hope, but I’m sure, that a great future lies ahead for Roma. I hope the work we have done in the last 18 years will continue and bear fruit.”
She went on to nostalgically talk about the link that Roma had played in her past and with her father saying that “When Roma lost we weren’t allowed out in the evening. When they won, we could ask him for a treat on Monday. Have I ever had a boyfriend who was a Lazio fan? I only found out afterwards. And I was never able to tell my dad.”
The Gazzetta dello Sport reports that the meeting itself is said to be in the final stages, Unicredit’s vice director general Paolo Fiorentino and their lawyer Grimaldi Roberto Capelli are said to be finalising the deal with their American counterparts although with Roma having a debt of 35-40 million, the deal is still a hard one to complete especially with UEFA’s Financial Fair Play being prepared to come into play.
US investors are said to have a long-term plan for the Giallorossi focusing on AS Roma the brand, marketing, merchandising, a youth system that is unmatched and a stadium fully owned by the club Welcome Bonus Offer Betway
