Friedkin signing preliminary contracts tomorrow to acquire AS Roma

John Solano

RomaPress – Tomorrow will be a very important day for AS Roma. Tomorrow, Friday, 28 February — the Giallorossi’s Board of Directors will meet to discuss the club’s semi-annual finances for the semester ending 31 December 2019. It will also mark, though, the final time that the team’s board will meet with James Pallotta as President. Entering in his place will be Dan Friedkin, the CEO of The Friedkin Group, whom started negotiations with Pallotta’s Raptor Group in late-October for the acquisition of the club.

Tomorrow will also be an important day for Friedkin and his 30 year-old son, Ryan, who will have an important role within the club.

Tomorrow Friedkin will sign the preliminary contracts that will effectively seal his acquisition of AS Roma. While the deal won’t close for a minimum of at least 60 days, the signatures ensure that the American has committed to purchasing the Giallorossi.

AS Roma will fall under The Friedkin Group umbrella of properties and, just like they were with Pallotta, will be registered in the United States. Dan and Ryan, who has been in Italy at various times throughout the last few months, will not return to the Italian capital until the deal is completed and finalised.

A new era is about to begin at Roma: Dan Friedkin’s arrival is near.
