Five offers on the table for Roma

The number of offers to buy Roma has risen to five, according to the latest reports in Italy.

Rothschild, the bank charged with finding a buyer for the club, presented Unicredit and the Sensi family with their findings last night.

A statement released to the stock market confirmed that negotiations are finally underway to sell Roma after a particularly drawn out process.

Though a lot of speculation has so far focused on a bid lodged by an American consortium with Thomas Di Benedetto at the helm, there is a rival from the Middle East.

Aabar, an investment fund, from Abu Dhabi has reportedly made an offer worth €150m.
