‘Torreira and Praet have clauses’

Sampdoria’s sporting director confirms clubs interested in Dennis Praet and Lucas Torreira will have to pay their respective release clauses.

Both have been linked with Napoli this summer, while Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund are also thought to be keen on Torreira.

“Torreira has a €25m release clause, everyone knows that,” Carlo Osti shrugged, speaking to Rai Sport.

“Anyone who wants him will have to pay that. Praet is one of the most complete midfielders in Italy right now, combining quality and hard work. As a man too he’s of the highest level.

“He also has a clause, of €26m. The same speech applies to him.”

Sampdoria are among the clubs linked with Mario Balotelli…

“We have to think about reality rather than being dreamers. Then again, anything can happen in football.”
