The owners of AS Roma are seeking new buyers for the club after a planned €750 sale collapsed because of the pandemic. A deal with Texas-based billionaire Daniel Friedkin fell apart. Steep falls in revenue for clubs have made it difficult for buyers to assess the value of teams.
Apparently Mr Friedkin made a revised offer of €575m in May which was not accepted. This involved paying in instalments starting with €125m on signing. He would also have covered €300m in debts by the end of the year.
The collapse of the deal has caused dismay at the club. They are now working with Goldman Sachs in a search for new bids.
