Roma will be forced to sell players in order to secure their financial stability, with Inter already making an offer on one, according to a report from today’s paper edition of the Rome based newspaper La Repubblica.
The report details how the Giallorossi are suffering from significant financial difficulties, with debt of over €278 million and a negative net equity of €178 million. The club will be forced to sell players in order to balance the books, and two players previously linked with Inter could be sold.
These players are Lorenzo Pellegrini and Nicolo Zaniolo, the report continues. The Nerazzurri have already made an offer for the 20-year-old Zaniolo, offering Roma Radja Nainggolan and cash. Juventus are also keen to sign the Roma forward and have offered the Giallorossi Federico Bernardeschi, Cristian Romero and cash.
Roma declined both offers, the report highlights, as well as rejecting the interest of Tottenham and Manchester United. Zaniolo’s price would be around €70-80 million.
