Turkish Airlines new Roma sponsor

Turkish Airlines have a new sponsorship deal with Roma and will have their logo on the team's shirts this season.

The Giallorossi had long been held back in their negotiations due to a difference in offer and demand, which led the airline to consider Lazio as a viable alternative.

President James Pallotta's initial request of €13-15m has been toned down, according to La Repubblica, and Turkish Airlines will now become Roma's sponsor for €7m per season.

This is a minor step up for the Turkish company as their initial offer was of €6m.
