RomaPress – The path leading Dan Friedkin to AS Roma is becoming more and more distant. After nearly nine months of negotiations, the Houston-based consortium will likely soon communicate their termination of talks with James Pallotta for the sale of the club after their most recent bid was rejected by the Bostonian.
Pallotta and his partners, Starwood Capital, still fully intend on selling the club – however, they aren’t willing to accept a deep discount, which Friedkin was seeking.
In the hopes of finding alternatives, Goldman Sachs, the investment bank that has been hired by Pallotta’s team, are sounding out for new potential investors for the club.
One of the names that has come out over the last few hours includes former Bordeaux president and Miami-based investor Joseph DaGrosa, the Chairman of General American Capital Partners.
RomaPress can confirm that Goldman Sachs has indeed contact DaGrosa about his potential interest in investing in AS Roma — both from a majority and minority stake standpoint. However, at the moment, there is no active negotiation.
