After performing fantastically with Sassuolo in the 2020/21 season as well as with the Italian national team that helped win the 2020 European Cup, Manuel Locatelli was rumored to have the opportunity to leave for Arsenal.
However, the chances of Mikel Arteta’s team in bringing Locatelli even more vanished. Because, the 23-year-old confirmed that he only wanted to leave I Neroverdi with a club that competed in the Champions League.
Locatelli’s statement, finally opened up more opportunities for Juventus who could secure his services. As is known, the Bianconeri have actually shown an interest in him for a long time.
Massimiliano Allegri’s club, even had time to make an offer to Sassuolo. Unfortunately at that time, Juve’s offer that wanted to loan him first with a permanent option had been flatly rejected.
Despite failing to reach an agreement with I Neroverdi, Goal made a report when La Vecchia Signora still refused to give up and will now give his second offer permanently.
Hearing the news, of course, further widen Juve’s opportunity to use Locatelli’s services, after Sassuolo only wanted to release the mainstay player permanently and set a price of around 40 million euros.
