The agent of Pellegrini, Defrel meets with Monchi


Giampiero Pocetta, the agent of Sassuolo’s Lorenzo Pellegrini and Gregoire Defrel, was at Trigoria today to meet with newly appointed sporting director Monchi:

What is Pellegrini’s will?
I am here to talk so it is obvious that he would like to come back to Rome, he is Roman and Romanista.

What is the obstacle to returning to Rome?
There is no obstacle, we are talking about it, it is not a negotiation that can be done in two minutes. This is an important club, he is an important player and he needs time.

Would Di Francesco being here be an incentive?
He knows him well, he is a manager who values him. Let’s see if he will be the next manager of Roma first.

How long is repurchase clause in effect for?
There’s still time.

Is the price already set?
There is a clause between Sassuolo and Roma. There is a predetermined price between the two clubs.

Pellegrini’s return could favor the arrival of Defrel?
This I do not know, we will see. Ask the sporting director, we talked about a lot of things. There is an interesting project here.
