Roma are reportedly not in any way interested in being involved in the European Super League.

Earlier today, Barcelona Chairman Joan Laporta gave a lengthy interview to RAC1 where he mentioned Roma as one of the clubs who were also keen on entering the new Super League project meant to rival UEFA.

“The Super League could be launched in 2025/26,” said Laporta. “There are Inter, Milan, Napoli, Roma, the big Spanish teams except Atlético Madrid, Marseille, Benfica, Sporting, Porto, Ajax, Feyenoord, PSV, Anderlecht and Bruges.”

However, Roma denied such rumors by releasing an official statement on their website:

“As stated publicly a few hours after the European Court of Justice’s decision on the Super League case, AS Roma reiterates that it does not support any project related to the so-called Super League.

The club also states that it has never changed its position on the matter, nor has it entered into any discussions about taking a different path other than clubs working together through the ECA in strong partnership and collaboration with UEFA and FIFA.”
