Juve had a season to forget, so this summer they will do everything to get back on the winning tracks. Max Allegri has been returned to the bench, and a lot of work is being done on new signings. As Goal finds out, and numerous Italian media report, an offer was sent to Sassuolo for the services of the Italian national team player Manuel Locatelli.
The former Milan football player has been on the radar of big European clubs for some time now. It has been speculated that Manchester City also wants him in their ranks, but Juventus does not want to allow the domestic player to continue his career outside the borders of his homeland.
That is how the first offer was sent to Sassuolo for the services of a midfielder who proved his quality with two goals against Switzerland in the second round of the group stage of the European Championship. According to the information on this site, the offer reads 30,000,000 euros and the talented Radu Dragusin.
Juve has shown interest in Locatelli before, but after his brilliant releases at the continental show, they decided to react.
The Bianconeri are aware that the price of the 23-year-old midfielder could jump sharply soon, so they cleverly opened negotiations with the team from Reggio Emilia, with whom they otherwise have excellent relations.
However, it is estimated that Sassuolo is asking for 10,000,000 more for the services of the football player they bought from Milan in the summer of 2019 for 14,000,000 euros. They hope in Turin that by including the talented Romanian in the offer, they could convince the management of the club from Mapei Stadium to put the ball down.
Dragusin is on the radar of several Serie A clubs, it was recently mentioned that Genoa would gladly see him in their ranks. Sassuolo has worked great with young football players for years, so there is no doubt that they would accept the arrival of the 19-year-old central defender with open arms, who also recorded four appearances for the first team of the Old Lady in the season.
Locatelli recently stated that the decision to continue his career will have to wait until the end of the European Championship, where the Azures, with a talented midfielder in their ranks, pointed out high ambitions after the maximum performance achieved in the first two rounds.
"These are just rumors. I will decide after the European Championship. I have a very important competition ahead of me and I am only focused on it. I rely on things that happen on the field, on real things, everything else is just gossip, it is pointless to talk about them." .
