Soccer: probe opened into AS Roma talks with Saudi royal


Rome, February 25 - Rome prosecutors on Monday
opened a probe into AS Roma's talks with a member of the Saudi
royal family on him taking a stake in the company that controls
the Serie A club.
Prosecutors asked Milan bourse regulator Consob to report
on "anomalous" movements in Roma shares.
Roma's share prices shot up 9.7% Friday.
Rome are reportedly aiming to get Sheik Adnan Adel Aref al
Qaddumi al Shtewi to take up a big stake in the three-time
Italian champions by the end of next month.
On Thursday the club issued a statement saying it had
reached a preliminary deal for the Saudi royal to join its
ownership group.
Roma chairman James Pallotta is studying ways for the
sheik to take up a stake via two capital increases of 50 million
euros each, according to media reports.
Pallotta is part of a Boston consortium that made Roma
Serie A's first foreign-controlled club in 2011.
The American owners have big plans and want to build a new
stadium for Roma.
