Recently inquired about by an increasing number of prominent clubs, including Barcelona FC, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Manchester City, Leeds United, Juventus, Inter Milan, and AS Roma, Italian international midfielder Manuel Locatelli (23), interviewed by L'Equipe, stated: "Watching Italy teammates of mine, such as Marco Verratti, Alessandro Florenzi, and Moise Kean, be such a success for Paris Saint-Germain, makes me tempted to join a club like PSG. That's a world-class club, based, moreover, in a wonderful city. I'd like very much to live that kind of experience. When a train carrying such an opportunity is passing in front of you, you have to get aboard and catch it".

While his origins as a pro player are rooted into AC Milan ranks, the 1998-born playmaker managed to stood out square and fair as a Sassuolo powerhouse. Locatelli, who has already collected 9 caps for Italian full-side national team, scoring one goal in the process, has admittedly been close to join Juventus in January, and is likely to be pursued by Bianconeri again, during next summer window. Neroverdi management set a 50 million euros transfer fee upon him.
