Genoa president Enrico Preziosi regrets selling Krzysztof Piatek for €35million in January, according to a report.
Preziosi unearthed a gem in many respects when he signed Piatek from Polish side Cracovia last summer for just €5million; the 23-year-old scoring 19 times in 21 competitive appearances for Genoa.
However, five months later the Rossoblu decided to sell Piatek for seven times more than they bought him for, with the Poland international arriving at San Siro as Gonzalo Higuain’s replacement for a €35m fee.
According to Calciomercato.com, Preziosi is bitter about the final figure he received for his star striker, believing that he could have got more for Piatek had he held on until the summer.
At the same time though, the fact they received €35m paid in a single instalment helped restore the balance sheet for the Marassi club.
Today, it is believed that Piatek’s valuation has doubled to €70m, but the Rossoneri do not have the slightest intention of selling any time soon.
