Ex-Roma president James Pallotta interested in Palermo

Ex-Roma president James Pallotta is being linked with a return to Italian football.

The Bostonian, 63, is on the hunt for a new club after he sold Roma in August 2020 to The Friedkin Group following a decade in the Italian capital.

He was previously linked to several clubs throughout recent months, including Newcastle United and Inter, but no agreement was ever reached.

However, according to today’s edition of Giornale di Sicilia, the American has engaged in talks to acquire Serie C side Palermo.

Reportedly, a representative from Pallotta’s Raptor Group approached Rosanero president Dario Mirri in October to enquire about the possibility of a sale.

The Sicilian side is one of the several clubs that the American is interested in, but there hasn’t been any additional contact in recent weeks between the parties.
