Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali has expressed his disappointment at Davide Frattesi’s intention to ignore rich offers from the Premier League. Frattesi is eager to develop in Italy, when teams from across Europe are interested in his services.
Speaking ahead of the Lega Serie A assembly in Milan, Carnevali reflected (via Calciomercato) on the transfer saga that has long bothered the club.
“Let’s hope that he has more and more suitors. We’ve had meetings with several teams, not just with Inter. What I can say is that for the moment no type of agreement or step forward has been made with any club. What I’m sorry about is that the boy has no intention of going to the Premier League, given that it was one of the most important offers.”
Frattesi: “Bid from Premier League? I told Sassuolo that honestly I don’t feel that’s the best step for me now. I’m not ready to go abroad yet”. ?? #transfers

Carnevali was quizzed if the inclusion of Samuele Mulattieri would change the course of negotiations with Inter for Frattesi.
“No. We are interested in Mulattieri, but also in other young Roma players. However, we are interested regardless of the sale of Frattesi, they are completely separate negotiations. We always have an eye on young players and we will continue with this policy. If there are important offers we will evaluate them, otherwise we will continue with Frattesi.”
Serie A giants including Inter, Juventus and Roma have held talks for Frattesi in a bid to lure him, but the 23-year-old intends to stay at home in Italy. Brighton and Manchester United are said to be eyeing the Giallorossi youth product.
