Cesena insist they “never spoke to Roma about Emanuele Giaccherini” amid reports of an imminent transfer.
Newspapers maintain Italy international Giaccherini, who was one of the breakout stars of this season, is in advanced negotiations with the Stadio Olimpico side.
“We have not heard from any club at this moment in time,” Cesena director of sport Lorenzo Minotti told LaRoma24.it.
“We have a very direct rapport with their director of sport Walter Sabatini, so I can confirm we never spoke to Roma about Giaccherini or any other player.
“So far, the Giallorossi have not even contacted us.”
