There are reports Juventus could finally clinch a deal with Sassuolo for Manuel Locatelli in Friday’s summit, probably at a figure of €35m.

The negotiations have dragged on for months, but it was evident that the Italy international only had his heart set on the Old Lady.

He rejected far larger offers from Arsenal, both in terms of transfer fee at €40m plus bonuses and his salary, to wait for Juve.

According to various reports, that might finally be paying off with an imminent agreement.

Sportitalia note a meeting has been set for Friday and it will be attended by the top men in the Juventus hierarchy, specifically President Andrea Agnelli and CEO Maurizio Arrivabene.

During today’s telephone call, both clubs seemed prepared to take a step towards each other to resolve the issue.

Sassuolo can drop from €40m to €35m asking price, while Juve should increase their previous bid of €30m including bonuses.

It should still be a loan deal with obligation to buy, therefore allowing Juventus to spread the cost out over several years of balance sheets, reports transfer pundit Nicolò Schira.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if they don’t get it done. The Juve board has been incompetent for years now.

    He is not good enough. Verrati is much better.
