Sassuolo: De Zerbi in, Locatelli out?

Sassuolo seem set to keep coach Roberto De Zerbi for another season, but Manuel Locatelli could be headed for Juventus, reports Tuttomercatoweb.

According to the website, De Zerbi has agreed to extend his contract until the end of the 2020-21 campaign.

It comes after he attracted interest from Fiorentina but also declared his wish to stay put, providing the club did not ‘change another nine players’ over the summer.

TMW also claims Juve are ‘pressing’ for Locatelli after Rolando Mandragora’s ACL injury pulled the plug on a potential swap with Roma midfielder Bryan Cristante.

The 22-year-old is enjoying his second season as an undisputed starter for Sassuolo after falling out of favour at Milan.

He could replace Adrien Rabiot, who remains the subject of interest from Carlo Ancelotti’s Everton.
