Roma breach Financial Fair Play but plan four January signings

by | Oct 26, 2021 10:27

Roma are reportedly preparing to sign four players in the January transfer window despite failing to comply with the Financial Fair Play requirements.

The Giallorossi registered a €185m loss for 2020-21, a slight improvement from the previous campaign when they had lost €204m.

In their financial statement, Roma admitted that they ‘failed to fulfil UEFA’s break-even requirements for the four-year reporting period.’

Roma and other clubs in the same position may not be sanctioned as a consequence of the COVID pandemic, which has severely damaged the finances of every club in Europe.

However, according to Il Corriere dello Sport, Roma will discuss their position with ECA and UEFA’s Club Financial Control Body.

According to the Rome-based paper, despite their financial situation, the Giallorossi are considering making new signings in January.

The Giallorossi have targeted four players in the winter transfer window, including a midfielder.

José Mourinho wants reinforcements in the middle of the park and Denis Zakaria is among his priority targets.

The contract of the Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder expires in the summer.

The Giallorossi will try to reach an agreement with him in January before entering talks with the German club, hoping to welcome the 24-year-old at the Stadio Olimpico in the winter transfer window rather than at the end of the season.

    So Roma breaches Fair Play but PSG never does – how does that work???

  2. DB Milan

    It won’t matter Frankie, Man City were found to have obstructed an FFP investigation and nothing happened. So Roma breaching FFP during a pandemic will definitely be allowed.

    covid was there for all clubs: if some did worse then others, they should be punished too.
