Juventus intensifies negotiations with Sassuolo to settle the Locatelli deal

Italian press reports revealed:

Juventus and Sassuolo are continuing to negotiate the transfer of international Manuel Locatelli to the ranks of the old lady in the current summer transfer period.

Toto Sport newspaper said:

Juve are asking for a two-year loan deal with an option to buy Locatelli, but Sassuolo is insisting on a one-year loan with an unconditional commitment to buy the player for at least €35m.

Locatelli joined the training after the end of the vacation that he obtained after winning the Euro 2020 title with the Italian national team.

He also rejected offers from the Premier League, most notably from Arsenal and Liverpool, as Locatelli’s contract with Sassuolo expires in June 2023.

Arsenal is awaiting the outcome of the negotiations currently underway, in light of Al-Madfiya’s desire to include the player in the English Premier League next season, after the player’s remarkable brilliance during the European Nations Cup “Euro 2020”.

The site indicated that Arsenal’s offer amounted to 40 million euros in cash, but the player believes that his future is linked to Juventus, which made the possibility of his transfer to the old lady greater.

According to the report, Juventus puts a young player chosen by Sassuolo within the offer, with the amount specified between the two parties in the deal.

The Azzurri won their title by defeating England in the final.

Italian press reports revealed:

The Italian club, Juventus, presented a new offer to the Sassuolo administration to sign the brilliant midfielder Manuel Locatelli during the current summer transfer season to support the Juventus ranks in the new season 2021-2022.

Sassuolo had rejected Juventus’ first offer to join Locatelli, which was a two-season loan with an option to buy for 30 million euros during the loan period.

As the Italian newspaper “La Gazzetta Sport” reported:

Juventus’ new offer to Sassuolo for Locatelli is a two-season loan of 5 million euros, plus 25 million euros by the end of 2023 when the player is bought permanently.
