Manuel Locatelli’s agent believes the Milan loanee will stay at Sassuolo ‘for at least another season’.
Locatelli joined Sassuolo on loan last summer with an obligatory purchase option worth €12m plus bonuses, and Stefano Castelnovo made it clear the Italy Under-21 midfielder would not be returning to Milan.
“He had the courage to leave Milan,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“It wasn’t a choice for everyone, but in my opinion it was a winning one. He’s grateful to his former team, but it was right to look forward.
“Sassuolo will buy him for €12m. After that we’ll see, but I really believe he’ll stay for at least another season.”
