Bologna’s Claudio Fenucci: ‘Destro is a great player…’

Former Roma director Claudio Fenucci, who now is the CEO for newly promoted side Bologna, was asked today by Sky Italia about his club’s pursuit of striker Mattia Destro, who looks destined to leave Roma this summer:

“We’re following Mattia Destro? Look…Destro is a very strong player, but he represents a difficult target for us economically. He’s interesting for every team, but the possibility of us acquiring him depends on the demands of Roma and the demands of the player.”
