Russian takeover for Lazio?

There are reports a Russian conglomerate has offered €170m to buy Lazio from President Claudio Lotito.

The patron has been under fire from ultras for years, a battle that intensified this season with a boycott that is leaving the Curva Nord empty.

They even organised a march through the city streets with banners demanding new investors ‘Free Lazio.’

According to Sport Mediaset, the message got through, as it is claimed a Russian conglomerate has made an offer to buy out the club.

The proposal ranges between €150m and €170m for the club, which is on the stock exchange.
