The two clubs continue negotiations for the deal, which should be made easier by the fact the Giallorossi sold him to Sassuolo for €5m in 2017 with a clause giving them a 30 per cent cut of any sell-on fee.
Meanwhile, the Corriere dello Sport newspaper claims Frattesi is so determined to make this work that he is prepared to cut back his summer vacation in order to start pre-season training with Jose Mourinho on July 4.
The 22-year-old would’ve been allowed more time off, as he played for Italy in the Nations League matches this month.
Frattesi earned his senior Italy debut after a strong campaign for Sassuolo, scoring four goals and providing four assists in 36 games.
