In January, Juventus will spend 25 million euros to transfer Manuel Locatelli, according to a Tuttomercatoweb report. Last season, the midfielder transferred from Sassuolo to the Bianconeri under a loan with an option to purchase arrangement. Since then, he has played a significant role for the Bianconeri, and Juve is glad to make his transfer a permanent one. According to the article, the total cost of the venture would be 37.5 million euros, with the first installment due in January.
What has Juventus FC said?
Since relocating to Turin, Locatelli has been a vital member of our team, and he has room for improvement. Juventus has said that
“We have no regrets about making this transaction, and the midfielder deserves to have his transfer made permanent.“
The team is hoping he keeps getting better and performs even better when we pay to make his transfer permanent. If that occurs, we can be confident that we will be in possession of a great midfielder who will perform admirably for us for up to ten years.
Locatelli is starting to demonstrate why they think so highly of him. And that he will fulfill the promise he had at Sassuolo. His advancement will undoubtedly help our team succeed as a whole.
After Juventus significantly underperformed in Serie A’s previous season, Massimiliano Allegri was re-appointed as manager, and Locatelli was considered as a key component of Allegri’s rebuilding effort. However, because Juventus has struggled since the season’s start, neither Allegri nor Locatelli’s plans have come to fruition.
Even if Locatelli has put out respectable efforts this year, Allegri’s midfield has frequently appeared disjointed. With seven victories, three draws, and five losses in 15 games, Juventus’ mediocre Serie A performance has caused them to drop to the seventh position.
