Giampiero Pocetta, the agent of Roma’s Lorenzo Pellegrini and Gregoire Defrel, spoke today to Sky Sport. These are his words:
“There has been a lot of talk about him, there have been talks with many teams who presented their projects, some of which are very interesting. Lorenzo is flattered by all this, he was wanted both in Italy and abroad but he is determined to remain with the Giallorossi. Totti’s words have motivated him with a sense of responsibility, he is a mature lad and does not want to evade situations. Beyond this, however, he is convinced of the validity of the Roma project. If he wanted to leave, he would have done so already. The buyout clause was put in place because it allows you room when you no longer want to stay. The will of Pellegrini today is to stay in Rome, we are even talking about a renewal and adaptation of the contract with the club, even if, as for the clause, we have no urgency in defining certain things.
There were talks of Defrel in the operation for Barella.
I don’t know anything about this negotiation, but the Rossoblu, along with others, like Defrel.
