Milan’s new owners have blocked Manuel Locatelli’s potential move to Sassuolo, according to reports.
The young midfielder had been linked with a move to the Neroverdi, possibly with a buyback clause.
However, negotiations were taking place under the ownership of Yonghong Li, who has been ousted by U.S hedge fund Elliot Management.
Now Corriere della Sera is reporting that the new owners see the 20-year-old as a very valuable asset, who could be sold for a big fee in the future.
