Sassuolo’s CEO says Matteo Politano’s move to Napoli didn't go through because “there was no communication” between their sporting director and President.
The winger looked set to complete a move to the Partenopei on deadline day, but the paperwork wasn’t filed before the transfer window shut.
“In the last hours Napoli tried to take Diego Farias to do a wide-ranging deal which would have also involved Adam Ounas, but there wasn’t the time,” Giovanni Carnevali explained on TRC TV.
“Reading and approving 40 pages in such a short period of time is impossible, but it seemed at a certain point the thing could get over the line.
“[Napoli sporting director] Cristiano Giuntoli is a great professional, but there was no communication between him and [President] Aurelio De Laurentiis.
“Ounas had to come to Sassuolo.
“What bothers me are the statements on Beppe Marotta and Juventus. It was a provocation, relating to De Laurentiis and Ounas’ contract.
“I heard Politano wasn’t their first choice anyway.”
