Russian company decides against Roma share purchase

The Italian lawyer Salvatore Trifiro, who is representing the Russian company Nafta-Moskva, has confirmed that it has decided against buying shares in Italy's Roma FC.

The French press has cited Trifiro explaining on the radio that the decision had been taken due to Roma's serious financial problems and those of Italian soccer in general.

According to French media reports, Roma, which is currently in second place in the league table, has debts between 250,000,000 and 300,000,000 euros and is experiencing difficulties in paying its players.

RIA Novosti has learnt from informed sources in the Italian capital that talks about the possible purchase of a 63.9% block for 43.5 million euros broke down last night. This happened when financial details, concerning the club's main shareholder, the company Roma 2000, emerged at the last moment.

Moreover, Italian law enforcement agencies are currently conducting a major investigation into serious financial irregularities at Roma, as well as a series of other Serie A clubs. Roma shares were suspended on the Milan stock exchange on Thursday.

When reached by RIA Novosti, Nafta Moskva refused to comment on the situation.
