Locatelli: Juve interest 'fantastic'

Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli has confessed that it would be ‘fantastic’ if Juventus were to ever show an interest in him.

Locatelli came to prominence with a winning goal against Juve in October 2016, and the Milan youth product admits he has eyes on a future move to the Bianconeri.

“Here I feel like a leading light, even if I struggled at the beginning,” the 21-year-old told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Coming here was the right choice. De Zerbi has shown me new concepts and at first, I didn’t understand. I didn’t accept being a substitute.

“Now I want to repay them for the faith they have in me. Juventus? For now I’m only thinking about Sassuolo, although it would be fantastic if there was interest one day.”
