This will be an initial loan deal with an obligation to buy. The eventual fee is reported as a total value of 33 million euros that includes 22-year-old striker Samuele Mulattieri going to Sassuolo. Frattesi signed a five year contract with Inter paying him a salary of 2.8 million per season.
Born in Rome in 1999, Frattesi grew up in the village of Fidene, where he first learned how to play football. At the age of six, Frattesi entered the Lazio youth sector eventually becomes a young captain.
He then moved to AS Roma where he continued to improve while winning a Coppa Italia and a Supercoppa Primavera. During this time, he continued to learn and train with the first team alongside players like Kevin Strootman and Daniele De Rossi.
Frattesi moved to Sassuolo in 2017, but an injury kept him off the field. He did find opportunities in the next several years as he went on loan to Ascoli in Serie B and the following year with Empoli, and then once again with Monza for the 2020-21 season. That season with Monza he learned to become dangerous in the attack scoring 8 goals in 39 games.
