The meeting between Juventus and Sassuolo has ended but the two parties have reportedly not reached an agreement for Manuel Locatelli’s move to Turin.
The Bianconeri and the Neroverdi met to discuss the future of the Italy international, but Sky Sport Italia reports the two parties couldn’t reach an agreement.
The player has reportedly turned down possible moves to England to join the Old Lady this summer, but the distance between the offer and the demand is still too big and the clubs never reached an agreement.
Tuttomercatoweb adds that Sassuolo have set a deadline to reach a conclusion within next weekend, and that Juventus must find a way to match their demands by August 8.
Yesterday, Sassuolo CEO Giovanni Carnevali confirmed the player ‘wants to join Juventus’, but stressed the Italian giants must ‘reach an agreement with us’ and warned there’s interest from Arsenal and another Premier League side.
The Bianconeri have reportedly offered €30m in a loan deal with an obligation to buy, but Sassuolo want at least €40m to part with the 23-year-old former Milan player.
