Locatelli could join Juventus this summer – agent
The agent of Sassuolo star Manuel Locatelli has admitted that the midfielder could move to Juventus this summer.
The Bianconeri are long-term admirers of the 23-year-old, who is regarded as one of the best midfielders in Serie A, and tried to sign him last summer.
FootballTransfers understands that Juve will come in with a new offer for the cultured midfielder this summer.
And Locatelli’s agent, Stefano Castelnuovo, had admitted that a transfer is possible come June.
“Juventus were interested in signing him in the summer, but the clubs did not reach an agreement. It can happen,” Castelnuovo told Tuttosport.
“Manuel is doing well with Sassuolo, he hasn’t changed his attitude and it wasn’t something to take for granted.
“I am happy he has made his Italy debut and everything is still possible with Juventus, maybe we’ll be luckier in the summer.
“We have a great relationship with Sassuolo, the club is really ambitious. We’ll see what happens. If a nice offer comes, it would be good for everyone to find an agreement. We’ll be always grateful to Sassuolo.”
Juventus host Sassuolo in Serie A on Sunday evening, with Locatelli starting against his potential future club.
