Interested in Manuel Locatelli, Paris Saint-Germain must now face competition from Juventus. An offensive of the Old Lady would even be in the pipeline according to the Italian press.
Juventus offer announced for Locatelli
After Georginio Wijnaldum, Paris Saint-Germain could recruit another midfielder this summer. PSG is particularly interested in Manuel Locatelli. The Italian midfielder, who plays for Sassuolo, is making a good start at Euro 2020 with the Azzurri. The 23-year-old player has scored twice against Switzerland (3-0 victory). Given his performances during the tournament, the midfielder is attracting the attention of other European clubs. Goal Italy has revealed that Juventus are interested in Locatelli. Midfield is one of Massimiliano Allegri‘s big projects this summer. This sector of the game is orphaned since the departure of its playmaker Miralem Pjanic. For the Italian source, the last 4th of Serie A wants to close the deal as soon as possible. For this reason, an offer from Juve could land on Sassuolo’s table in the next few days.
PSG and Juve set on Locatelli
According to Goal, Juventus are willing to pay 30 million euros for Manuel Locatelli. But it is not certain that Sassuolo will accept the Turin proposal. The Italian club would like to wait until the end of the Euro to see if other suitors come knocking on their door for their star player. The idea for the neroverdi leaders is to raise the stakes. For now, Sassuolo would have set the price of its midfielder at 40 million euros. Like Jeremie Boga, who is being courted by Marseille and Lyon, Locatelli will not be retained in case of a satisfactory offer this summer. Last season, he played 34 Serie A games for 4 goals and 3 assists.
