RomaPress – To date, it still remains a one-horse race involving The Friedkin Group — but another competitor could potentially be joining the contest to acquire AS Roma.
Roma has confirmed that a Kuwait-based consortium has started to study the financial data of the club as they have expressed some interest in potentially formulating a bid in an attempt to purchase the Giallorossi from current president James Pallotta.
Pallotta has been engaged in negotiations with the Houston-based Friedkin Group since last October and there has been a recent uptick in dialogue between the parties, however, they still haven’t reached a definitive agreement.
In the meantime, the club has been searching for alternatives to Friedkin and they have sounded-out a group of Kuwait-based investors, who indicated their interest in potentially acquiring the club.
The Friedkin Group remains, without question, the favorite to become the new owners of Roma, but Pallotta remains hopeful that an offer will arrive from a new group of investors in the coming weeks as he is eager to sell the club before the New Year.
