Report: Roma handover this week

James Pallotta should only be formalities away from handing Roma over to Dan Friedkin, who will reportedly sign the purchase on Wednesday.

The representatives have been drawing up the 12 different contracts of the 12 companies of Pallotta and Corriere dello Sport reports that the signature should be in place within three days.

The preliminary contracts for the handover from Pallotta to the group owned by Friedkin should be in New York on Wednesday and the change of hands seems to be only one step away.

Pallotta: 'Sale no impact on Roma form'

Patron James Pallotta has claimed that the sale of Roma has “nothing to do with the team’s performance” despite their third consecutive defeat in Serie A.

Pallotta is currently doing the paperwork that will see Dan Friedkin take over the Giallorossi and they are reportedly close to finalising the handover.

Roma are struggling to perform on the pitch and lost terrain to Atalanta after the 2-1 defeat in Bergamo on Saturday, but Pallotta insists that it has nothing to do with what goes on behind the drapes at the Olimpico.

Roma running in circles

Roma brought in three young talents, but kicked out Alessandro Florenzi, so Vilizar Yakimov is trying to make sense of yet another controversial transfer strategy.

It’s really hard to find logic behind most of Roma’s decisions on the transfer market in recent years. However, if you look carefully into the Giallorossi dealings since James Pallotta took over the presidency in 2011, one pattern stands out.

Did Friedkin want Milan before Roma?

The Friedkin Group is in the final stages of the takeover for AS Roma, but there are reports the same company tried to purchase Milan.

Statements from the Giallorossi confirm a takeover is imminent, as the due diligence stage has now been completed, bringing the James Pallotta era to an end after nearly eight years.

However, according to Milano Finanza, Roma did not represent the first choice for Dan Friedkin and his group of investors.

Lazio the real power in Rome now

Lazio have grown both on and off the field in recent years, as Susy Campanale sees them rivalling Roma to become the leading light in the Capital.

The Lazio motto in recent years has been La Prima Squadra della Capitale – the first team in the Capital. This refers to the fact they were founded before rivals AS Roma, but have historically always been considered the smaller club, in terms of fanbase, success and influence. However, things are changing in the Eternal City.

Friedkin in Italy to initiate handover

Dan Friedkin has reportedly arrived in Italy to make the first official step towards the Roma takeover and might be at the Allianz Stadium tonight.

The Corriere dello Sport reports that the American businessman has landed in Italy to initiate the process, but it may take a few weeks until the handover becomes official.

The newspaper claims that the contracts will be signed before the end of February as Friedkin arrived in Milan with his son Ryan. Due to a huge amount of paperwork, the process will require some time to be completed.

“It’s the usual fake news,” Pallotta told LaRoma24.it.
