Genoa’s Perinetti: “If Peres rejects Genoa then it’s all over.”

Giorgio Perinetti, general director of Genoa, spoke to Pagine Romaniste about the negotiations between his side and Roma, who are discussing a potential swap of Diego Laxalt for Bruno Peres. These are his words:

What point is the negotiation at for Laxalt-Peres?
If Peres accepts Genoa, we will gladly bring him, but I don’t know if we he will move during these months. If Peres comes to Genoa then the operation will go through, but if he wants to stay at Roma then it’s all over.

Meanwhile, La Gazzetta dello Sport have reported that the Brazilian prefers to remain in Rome, putting the entire operation at risk.
