Sassuolo’s Giovanni Carnevali comments on Davide Frattesi’s failed Roma switch

Sassuolo director GIovanni Carnevali discussed the failed negotiations between Roma and the Neroverdi for Italian midfielder Davide Frattesi.

In a recent interview with, Carnevali detailed how Roma never seemed convinced of the player and as a result talks never truly progressed over the course of the summer.

“At the beginning there was interest on Roma’s part, but it was never actually as close as people made it out to be,” Carnevali said after the transfer deadline.

“Roma have a 30% sell-on clause to their advantage, but I don’t know to what extent they have had this great interest in Frattesi.”

“If I’d been in Tiago Pinto’s place, I would have bought Frattesi for the amount I asked for, that is €30 million or maybe with the addition of some of the young players from Roma’s Primavera.”

“I don’t think there was any concrete interest, Roma didn’t make big investments this summer. Instead they went after experienced, ready-made profiles. We will see in the future.”
