Juventus to challenge Man City with Locatelli bid

According to Tuttosport, Juventus are determined to sign Manuel Locatelli in the summer and are ready to place a bid, but Manchester City are also interested in the Sassuolo and Italy starlet.

Juventus are long time admirers of the product of Milan academy who left the Rossoneri to join Sassuolo in the summer of 2018.

According to Tuttosport, the 23-year-old remains a priority for the Bianconeri who want to sign him in the summer transfer window.

The Old Lady are expected to make a loan offer with obligation to buy, the same formula they used to sign Federico Chiesa from Fiorentina back in October.

Locatelli is also being linked with a move to Manchester City and Sassuolo’s asking price is in the region of €40m.

Football Italia discussed the future of the Italy starlet in an exclusive interview with Sassuolo’s captain Francesco Magnanelli back in November.
