Locatelli grew up in the youth sector of Milan and had his breakthrough season 2 years ago. However, he found less space last season and this summer he took the decision to leave the club in pursuit of more minutes and option to grow.
“Milan announces the agreement for the player Manuel Locatelli to join US Sassuolo Calcio on a loan deal with an obligation to buy,” the Rossoneri wrote in a statement.
“Milan wishes Manuel the best of luck in his future sporting career, thanking him for his professionalism and commitment to the Club.” It is believed that the whole deal is worth 14m, with the Neroverdi paying €2m for the loan of the midfielder and then €10m + €2m next summer.
