RomaPress – Rumors have emerged over the last hours that Kuwait-based businessman Fahad El-Bakar is close to acquiring AS Roma from current president James Pallotta.

The American, though, has denied these rumors exclusively to RomaPress and has stated he hasn’t had any contact with him.

Pallotta has had the club up for sale since late last year, however, he has yet to find an agreement with any party as talks with fellow American Dan Friedkin have stalled. Here’s what the Bostonian had to say:

Is there any truth to this rumor that Fahad El-Bakar is close to purchasing the club from you?
I haven’t spoken to him, no.
