After AC Milan, Czech billionaire wants AS Roma

Prague, Czech Republic – Czech billionaire Daniel Kretinsky, who owns Sparta Prague, would be eager to open takeover talks with AS Roma’s owners, according to Corriere dello Sport, although Roma power-brokers insist the club, currently 9th of the Italian Serie A, is not for sale.

The 43-year-old energy magnate, who recently acquired 49% of French newspaper Le Monde, was already rumoured to be interested in buying European giants AC Milan. Although Kretinsky denies this claim, the Italian club’s American owners reportedly turned down a tempting 600-million-euro offer from the Czech entrepreneur.

Close to Chelsea owner and Russian oligarch Roman Abramovitch, Daniel Kretinsky also supposedly tried to buy the London club from him.

This comes hot on the heels of rumours that Petr Kellner, the richest Czech alive, was thinking of buying the English club, who’s facing a costly rebuild of their historic 42,000-seat home ground as they plan to raise its capacity to 60,000.

The 54-year-old Czech tycoon, who has an executive box at Stamford Bridge, is the world’s 88th richest person, with a an estimated wealth of 14 billion euros according to Forbes.
