Friedkin made Milan inquiry before closing in on Roma

Financial newspaper Milano Finanza has reported that Dan Friedkin, CEO of The Friedkin Group, made a last-minute inquiry to purchase Milan before ultimately nearly closing in on the acquisition of Roma.

Reportedly, the American inquired directly to the Singer family, the owners of the Elliot Fund (who currently control Milan). Friedkin was reportedly willing to pay €1 billion for the Rossoneri, however, this amount wasn’t sufficient.

Friedkin ultimately decided against raising his offer since he felt that taking over Roma would likely be a more feasible. The deal is expected to close in the coming weeks.
