Sassuolo’s CEO Giovanni Carnevali has once again invited top clubs in Serie A to make bids for some of their best players.
Carnevali spoke during an interview with Sky Italia about some of the talents that the club have going into the summer transfer window and he began by outlining the Neroverdi’s stance on selling them.
“We have our philosophy and we will not sell all the players we care about to the others. This year it will not be easy to keep them, we have not had important bids to date, only interests, but our goal is to continue on our path, he said (via Calciomercato.com).
“Next year will be our tenth year in Serie A, we will deprive ourselves of one or two players but be careful. We have a strong ownership and we want to build something that allows us to always grow.
“Giving in does not mean weakening, on the contrary, we will have the opportunity to invest in young players. We will sell only in the face of significant offers. I repeat that to date there are none, there is interest, we are asked for evaluations but it also counts how the players will want to be paid.
“There are regulations that are changing, certain operations we will not be able to more do them.I am convinced that some important offer will arrive, we are happy about this because it pays off our work.”
Gianluca Scamacca’s form this season has seen him garner interest from a number of Italian sides, with Milan regularly touted as a potential suitor considering their current striker situation heading into the summer, and though he recently renewed until June 2026 Carnevali teased both Milan clubs.
“Who can he be useful to? For Inter and Milan, he is an important player and it would be good if he did not end up abroad. Today, however, a player like him is more likely to go to a foreign league,” he admitted.
Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reported earlier this week meanwhile that in the next few days there will be a discussion between the management of Milan and their counterparts at Sassuolo to talk about Domenico Berardi, who has 14 goals and 11 assists in 28 league games this season and is an option for the right wing.
“I will limit myself to saying that if I were a manager of a big club the first purchase I would make would be Berardi. Selling him, apart from the relationship with the boy, would be tough. He would be very very difficult to replace, he has great quality,” Carnevali added.
“Offers arrive every year but finding an agreement is not easy, given that we give Berardi the right value. At times he has been underestimated by the various clubs who have asked us.
“Domenico is a very reserved guy, he has grown up a lot and in the past he has also refused some clubs because he didn’t think he was ready. Not everyone makes such choices. In Italy there aren’t any players like him.”
