Members of Roma’s current and past management are set to be questioned by the Prosecutor’s Office.
These hearings will reportedly serve to clarify some of Roma’s transfer dealings between 2017 and – following the Friedkin’s takeover – 2021.
Corriere della Sera reports that the likes of Guido Fienga, Mauro Baldissoni, Pietro Berardi and Giorgio Francia – all members of Roma’s management under James Pallotta – will be questioned with regards to certain accounting matters related to the club’s transfer business.
The Prosecutor’s Office will primarily focus on two cases: Leonardo Spinazzola’s signing from Juventus in 2019 in exchange for Luca Pellegrini and Gregoire Defrel’s arrival move to Roma which entailed the sale of Primavera players Davide Frattesi and Riccardo Marchizza.
The Prosecutor’s Office also wants to analyze the sale of Marco Tumminello to Atalanta in 2018, to cushion the purchase of Bryan Cristante from the Bergamaschi. Finally, the investigators believe it is necessary to delve deeper into the purchase of Marash Kumbulla from Verona.
