Liverpoool owner in for AS Roma


Thomas di Benedetto, part owner of the Boston Red Sox and a partner in the holding company that owns Liverpool FC, is one of a group of American owners hoping to conclude deal to buy AS Roma in the next fortnight.   To the best of my knowledge, this is the first American takeover of a leading Italian club.   The proceeds of the acquisition will be used to pay off €277m of debt owed to UniCredit, Italy's largest bank.
