Il Messaggero – Since Saturday, Marc Watts and the rest of the Friedkin Group entourage are no longer in Rome. The evaluation of the club’s assets is completed and now we are awaiting the communication of the binding offer — for which we will have to wait a few more days.
The positive outcome of the negotiation is absolutely not under discussion, but the on the pitch crisis Roma are going through at the moment could influence the final valuation of the sale of the Giallorossi. In fact, a clause has been inserted into the deal in the event that Roma miss out on Champions League football for next season.
Roma President James Pallotta is aware that his asset sliding further and further away from a Champions League place means he risks earning less from the sale of the club. This is why Roma CEO Guido Fienga’s face-to-face showdown with the Giallorossi players can’t be underestimated.
