Juventus could lose Manuel Locatelli if other interested clubs, such as Arsenal and Manchester City, make a simple money offer to sign with the Italian star.
Locatelli is expected to leave Sassuolo over the summer and Juventus have opened talks to sign the 23-year-old Italian.
Sassuolo estimates Locatelli at 40 million euros and according to reports from La Gazzetta dello Sport, the representatives of the two clubs will not meet today (Wednesday) in Rimini.
The Serie A giants are very interested in signing with the Italian, but can match Sassuolo’s asking price just by adding a player to a €30 million money offer.
Juventus also want to pay the player from 2022 as they plan to place a loan offer with a purchase option.
Sassuolo is in no hurry to sell the player and according to the Italian newspaper, they have received ‘significant offers’ from Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.
However, Manchester City and Real Madrid are also interested in the product of the Milan academy, which scored two goals in three appearances at Euro 2020.
Although Locatelli would prefer a move to Juventus, the Bianconeri could lose his signature if another club pays Sassuolo’s asking price without adding players to the deal.
