Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini was recently approached by satirical TV program Le Iene who pulled a prank on several players in Serie A.

In fact, a journalist for Mediaset pretended to work as an intermediary, offering opportunities in Saudi Arabia.

Pellegrini turned out to be one of the players selected for this ‘experiment.’

However, the midfielder did not fall for it.

During the phone conversation, Pellegrini answered, “I don’t care, I feel good at Roma and I’m happy to play for the team of my city. €30 million per year? That doesn’t interest me.”
