Giampiero Pocetta, the agent of Lorenzo Pellegrini and Grégoire Defrel of Sassuolo, has issued statements to Juventus.eu regarding the midfielder:
Is it true that Juventus have contacted you for Pellegrini or you deny this?
I deny this. It is absolutely not true, no one from Juventus has made contact with myself for Pellegrini.
Whoever wants the player must first go before Roma?
No, Sassuolo and the Giallorossi have a gentlemen’s agreement. Pellegrini will be able to choose his next destination Should’ve he decide to leave.
Would Pellegrini willingly retuen to Rome since he made his first steps as a footballer there?
Certainly he doesn’t take something like this for granted, but in football anything can happen. Lorenzo is in a good moment at Sassuolo, he is working well, he is at a serious club that is helping him grow. For now we do not think about the transfer market, but I think it’s normal that many Italian and European clubs are after him given his ability.
