Wed 19 May 2021 | 17:42

Juventus have spoken to Sassuolo for signing with Manuel Locatelli, but aside from PSG and Manchester City, Shakhtar Donetsk also emerge as the favorite destination for him because of Roberto De Zerbi.

Sassuolo

coach

Roberto De Zerbi

announced that he will depart the club and join

Shakhtar Donetsk

when the season ends.

As per reports from

Calciomercato.com

, he may ask

Manuel Locatelli

to follow him and the 23-year-old is interested in the idea of playing abroad.

Juventus

were the most probable destination for him, with PSG and Manchester City also eyeing the Italy international.

His transfer fee of €40m appeared as too expensive for most of the clubs in Italy, including the Bianconeri, who’d make an offer of €20m as well as some player swaps.

De Zerbi moving to the Ukrainian club turns things around, with an offer of €35m and a contract that is valued at €3m per season for Locatelli.

It may also depend on who the Juventus manager will be for the next campaign and whether they get Champions League qualification.
