Rossi sure Locatelli will become a top player

Sassuolo deny Juve synergy

Sassuolo have denied that a blatant synergy exists between them and Juventus, accusing the Press of spin.

Sassuolo have done plenty of business with Juve since their promotion to Serie A in 2014, and it was speculated there was already an agreement in place for Merih Demiral to join the Old Lady in January.

The same appears to be the case with Hamed Traore, but sporting director Giovanni Rossi was quick to stress how little had been made of his club’s dealings with Inter and Roma.
