ROME, April 12 (Xinhua) -- Lazio have dismissed speculations that Russian investors had offered a takeover worth 170 million euros.
The Rome club released a statement on Saturday claiming that these speculations were "false and entirely without foundation."
According to local media reports on Saturday, a Russian conglomerate has offered 170 million euros to buy Lazio from president Claudio Lotito.
The patron has been under fire from ultras for years, a battle that intensified this season with a boycott that is leaving the Curva Nord empty.
They even organized a march through the city streets with banners demanding new investors "Free Lazio".
