‘He’s Class, Would Love Him At City’ ‘Come To Manchester’ Fans Want Club To Make Move For 34M Rated Italian Midfield General

Manchester City could make an official offer for Sassuolo midfielder Manuel Locatelli very soon, according to reports in the Italian media.

The 23-year-old has also been linked with Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea in recent days, and supporters on Twitter want the Citizens to beat their rivals to the Italian international’s signature:

It is believed that Sassuolo will demand around €40m (£34m) for Locatelli, which shouldn’t be a problem for City. Whether they will make a formal approach in the coming days and weeks, though, it is open for debate.

The Manchester club’s priorities are thought to be a new striker and an attacking midfielder, so it doesn’t seem like a bid for Locatelli is currently top of the agenda.

There is no doubt that the Italian is a top-quality player, but manager Pep Guardiola does have a wealth of options in the middle of the park so signing someone like Locatelli isn’t a pressing concern.
