Bidding war to break out for Locatelli

by | Jun 2, 2021 13:32

Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli looks to become the hottest name on the transfer market, with Juventus, PSG, Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Shakhtar Donetsk interested.

The former Milan youth product has flourished at Sassuolo and is in the Italy squad for Euro 2020.

Juventus have long been interested, but there are numerous clubs outside of Serie A who are clamouring for Locatelli.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, a bidding war could break out between Champions League Finalists Manchester City and Chelsea.

Paris Saint-Germain are also keeping a close eye on the situation, while Carlo Ancelotti’s arrival at Real Madrid could open the door for the Italian there too.

Sassuolo have no need to sell, so would only part with one of their star men for a large sum – over €50m – or if the player asked to leave.

An intriguing candidate remains Shakhtar Donetsk, as it would see Locatelli following ex-Sassuolo coach Roberto De Zerbi to Ukraine.
