Roma Transfer Twist: Player Rejects Al-Nassr Move

In a surprising twist in the transfer market, it has emerged that Al-Nassr, led by Cristiano Ronaldo, had their sights set on Roma captain Lorenzo Pellegrini.

According to Tuttosport, the Saudi Arabian club made a concerted effort to secure Pellegrini’s services.

This attempt, however, was ultimately unsuccessful.

Pellegrini, currently participating in the European Championships, received the proposal in recent days.

Despite the lucrative nature of the offer, the Roma midfielder declined.

Sources close to the player revealed that Pellegrini’s priority remains with Roma, where he has established himself as a key figure.

“Tuttosport reports that Al-Nassr were very keen on signing Pellegrini, going as far as to make a formal contact,” said an insider familiar with the matter.

The source added, “The player, however, was not enticed by the move to Saudi Arabia and opted to stay in Europe.”

This revelation highlights the increasing efforts of Saudi clubs to attract European talent, though not all players are swayed by the financial incentives.

Roma supporters will undoubtedly be pleased with Pellegrini’s decision to remain loyal to the club.

The 27-year-old has been instrumental in Roma’s recent successes and is seen as a cornerstone of the team’s future ambitions.
