The presidents of Inter Milan and Roma have met with UEFA's control board as part of an investigation into possible breaches of financial fair play rules.

UEFA announced in September that Inter and Roma were among seven clubs which qualified for the Champions League or Europa League this season and are now being investigated over deficits in the past two financial years.

The Gazzetta dello Sport estimates Inter's deficit at $225 million for the past three years and Roma's at $125 million.

Inter's Indonesian president Erick Thohir says Friday, "FFP contains a positive message and one which we believe in. It will strengthen European football. We were delighted to share our project with UEFA."

Roma's American president James Pallotta was at UEFA on Thursday.
