Qatar-Roma links intensify

L’Equipe is the latest publication to claim Qatar Sports Investments are interested in buying Roma.

Roma President James Pallotta appeared to shut down the speculation with a ‘fake news’ tweet on Tuesday.

However, L’Equipe has joined Milano Finanza and Corriere dello Sport in stating that interest from Qatar ‘does exist’.

The French newspaper explains QSI chief – and Paris Saint-Germain President – Nasser al-Khelaifi is studying the possibility of a takeover.

Due to a possible conflict of interest with PSG, the Giallorossi would be bought by another company with close links to QSI.

There is already Qatari involvement at the club, given they are sponsored by Qatar Airways.
