Locatelli all set for Juventus medical

by | Aug 17, 2021 16:55

Juventus are planning Manuel Locatelli’s medical for tomorrow and hope to play him in the Serie A season opener against Udinese this weekend, it’s reported.

Multiple sources including Sky, Sportitalia, the Gazzetta dello Sport and more are confident today that a deal has been struck with Sassuolo for the midfielder.

It is a two-year loan with obligation to buy that is activated by their first point in the 2021-22 campaign, for a cost of €30m plus bonuses reaching €35m.

Sassuolo could also retain a 20 per cent cut of any future transfer fee.

Now those same sources maintain a medical has been scheduled in Turin for tomorrow morning.

Juventus hope they can register Locatelli in time for him to play in the opening Serie A game of the season against Udinese.

Sassuolo are making a tidy profit too, as they purchased Locatelli from Milan for just €14m in 2019.

He started in the Atalanta youth academy, switching to the Milan version in 2010.

    Lord Cherubini will prove to be a disaster if straightforward deals like this is so difficult for him to pull off.

    Sighs*
