There is still a substantial difference between Juventus and Sassuolo regarding a potential deal for midfielder Manuel Locatelli.
La Gazzetta dello Sport has put out some details about Locatelli’s future, also carrying some comments from Neroverdi CEO Giovanni Carnevali.
The report claims that there is still quite a bit of difference between the two clubs. The latest meeting between the two clubs has been postponed for a later date and the idea is to meet again at the weekend. Both the clubs want to make sure that there are no major disagreements.
The Bianconeri’s proposal currently stands at a loan fee of €5 million and an option to buy for a fee of €20 million plus bonuses totalling upto €7 million too. But Sassuolo, as things stand, want €40 million for the Italian midfielder.
Locatelli returns from holidays on the 2nd of August and he still has Juve on his mind, having rejected Arsenal. Carnevali has stated that Sassuolo are looking for an appropriate offer or Locatelli will stay at the Mapei.
