Roma offload Cristian Volpato and Filippo Missori in double sale to Sassuolo

Roma have moved closer to meeting their financial targets by selling academy graduates Cristian Volpato and Filippo Missori to Sassuolo.

Volpato, an attacking midfielder, made 14 appearances for the first team and scored twice, whereas full-back Missori made four appearances at senior level.

It was recently reported, via Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo, that Roma would gain €7.5m for Volpato and €2.5m for Missori. In each case, the club will retain a 15% sell-on clause.

Volpato and Missori are the third and fourth players to leave Roma this summer after Benjamin Tahirovic and Justin Kluivert.

In order to appease UEFA in light of Financial Fair Play restrictions, one more player will need to be sold by the end of June – most likely Carles Perez if a deal for him to stay at Celta Vigo after his loan spell can be finalised.

Further exits could follow later in the month – in addition to Georginio Wijnaldum and Mady Camara heading back to their parent clubs following their loan spells – but without the time pressure that is active until 30th June.
