Sassuolo’s Carnevali: “We’ll see if Roma repurchase Pellegrini.”


Giovanni Carnevali, general manager of Sassuolo, spoke today to Radio Tuttomercatoweb regarding attacked Gregoire Defrel and Lorenzo Pellegrini:

“We refused an important offer for Defrel in January, but it was not for €30 million. For that figure, we would have maybe had a different thought (on not selling) but our intention is not to sell players in January. We have already had experience in the past with this for Zaza, who Juventus asked for in January, we do not want to make changes during the season, but we’ll talk in the summer. Pellegrini and Roma? They have already asked for him in January, but the same argument we made for Defrel was made for him. In June, we will discuss this issue again since Roma have a right to repurchase him and it remains to be seen if they will exercise it. We would be pleased if he stays another season.”
