Roma ready to sell to US businessman Di Benedetto

BY foxsports • February 3, 2011

Roma says it's ready to negotiate a sale to American businessman Thomas Di Benedetto, a part owner of the parent company of the Boston Red Sox and Liverpool.

Members of Roma's management have been in the United States for over a week to try to find buyers, and chose Di Benedetto's company Di Benedetto AS Roma LLC ahead of four other offers.

A club announcement on Thursday said the American company ''present themselves as the most competitive offer.''

The two parties hope to conclude the deal within two weeks.

Di Benedetto was a partner in the Fenway Sports Group, formerly New England Sports Ventures, which owns the Red Sox, Fenway Park, Liverpool, New England Sports Network and Roush-Fenway Racing.
