ROME – “Is the deal still possible at the moment? Always". The president of Rome, James Pallotta, thus denies to the site "laRoma24.it" the rumors regarding the failure of the negotiation with the group headed by the Texan tycoon Dan Friedkin for the sale of the Giallorossi club.
Before the coronavirus pandemic broke out, the passage of Rome seemed to be at a step of more than 700 million euros.
Francesco Totti and Luca Toni, two former Giallorossi players, also spoke of this negotiation for the sale of Rome, during a direct posted on Instagram.
“Buying Rome? Well now it costs less … ". Francesco Totti responds with one of his jokes to the provocation launched by his ex-partner Luca Toni during a live video call on Instagram.
The Giallorossi company, before the coronavirus pandemic broke out, was close to changing hands from James Pallotta to the Friedkin Group for an amount exceeding 700 million euros.
The general stop imposed by the emergency, however, has frozen the negotiation.
"So much the next president who arrives throws you in" then adds Toni, taking for granted a return of Totti to Trigoria.
"To play? If he should call me a game again, of course, ”the former number 10 replies ironically.
