The meeting between the Roma managers and UEFA is over. The club is confident in a positive outcome due to the efforts made to replenish the debt.
Although the giallorossi closed their financial statements in the red, Pallotta and his collaborators did their best to cope with the financial regulations imposed by UEFA. Today, the European football federation analyzed the situations in order to understand the reasons why the Lupi missed the planned breakeven.
Roma’s General Manager Baldissoni and the CEO Gandini provided UEFA with the numbers relative to the efforts made in the recent transfer window.
As reported by the Italian outlet ‘Il Tempo’, UEFA should decide what to do between April and May 2018. Likely, the European football federation will sanction the club of Trigoria with a fine. In addition, the Roma roster could be reduced for European competitions.
UEFA should be lenient with the Italian side because the debt of the club of the Italian capital is just 10 million euro. Moreover, it was promptly reported to the UEFA financial controllers right after Manolas’ transfer to Zenit fell through.
The strategy of the giallorossi is not going to change though. Probably, in the next summer, Monchi will be forced to trade out another player in order to reach the forecasted financial breakeven.
