The Abu Dhabi based investment fund Aabar has formally denied making an offer for Roma.
It had been reported that a bid was lodged to rival another from an American consortium.
Bloomberg claims they have since received an email from Aabar's chief executive Mohamed Al-Husseiny to say: "An offer has not been made to buy Roma and Aabar does not intend to make one in the future.
"Aabar does not understand the reasons behind so much intense press speculation but wishes to distance itself from rumours regarding the valid and correct sale of the Italian football club.
"The journalists and other interested parties are invited to confirm the veracity of the reports directly with Aabar."
