Cristian Bucchi, current Sassuolo manager, spoke to Sky Sport today and addressed the future of Gregoire Defrel:
Are you already thinking about how to replace Defrel?
It is useless to hide that Defrel is one of those players who is likely to leave. In fact, I think he will be the only one who could leave, while the others remain.
We will evaluate him when he comes back from holidays, but I hope he can be part of this group. He has great margins to continue his growth. For him, this is a very important year because it is the one that is right before the World Cup. I think he can grow a lot in this group.
