Changes are taking place at AS Roma. James Pallotta is set to leave his role as majority shareholder and chairman of the group to hand over control to Dan Friedkin.
Pallotta’s reign in Rome hasn’t been a very happy or successful one, with club legend Francesco Totti speaking out negatively on more than one occasion.
Fans will be hoping for brighter times, and Pallotta could look for new football investments, reports La Stampa. He’s already moved, via Franco Baldini, to see if there’s a Championship club he could swoop for… ‘such as Leeds’.
Baldini is a football consultant, best known in England for his time with Tottenham Hotspur.
La Stampa don’t have any more information on Pallotta and Leeds United and it would appear everything is currently at the initial idea stage. Marcelo Bielsa’s side getting promotion to the Premier League may well take the club out of the reach of Pallotta.
Leeds United have been heavily linked in recent months with QSI, the owners of PSG. There’s nothing coming from France at the moment with regards to that possible takeover.
