Fact Or Fiction-Who's Planning To Buy A Stake In AS Roma

Posted on: under General

Word on the street says Giants owners Steve Tisch and John Mara have teamed up with Jets owner Woody Johnson.  For what you ask?  To devise a plan to buy a controlling stake in the Italian soccer team AS Roma.  Il Manifesto, a daily newspaper in Rome, Italy, stated on Tuesday that the three reportedly made an offer to buy the team three years after George Soros and Joe Tacopina put in an unsuccessful bid to buy the club.

 

While Il Manifesto reported the dollar amount has not been made public, Tisch, Mara and Woody have denied making a bid.  With an estimated value of $308 million, the club has been seeking an outside buyer since last summer while UniCredit de facto controls the group.  Check out the New York Post for the full article.

 

Who do you think will end up buying the stake?
