There have been strong reports in the Italian media for several weeks now that Roma would have to be sold due to the fact that the club´s parent company, Italpetroli, had accumulated debts in the region of US$580million.
"Italpetroli, in its role as indirect controller of AS Roma, wants to state that even though in recent months it has received signs of possible interests from third parties to hold AS Roma Shares, none have matured into concrete offers," read a statement by Italpetroli.
