Juventus Turin has been actively engaged in contract extensions since the end of the summer transfer window. Following the recent reports of discussions with Serbian striker Dusan Vlahovic, another player is now set to meet with club officials to negotiate a new deal.
According to Italian journalist Nicolo Schira, 25-year-old midfielder Manuel Locatelli is in talks to extend his contract by one season, potentially keeping him at the club until June 2027.
It is worth noting that Locatelli had the opportunity to reunite with his former mentor Roberto de Zerbi at Brighton this summer, but he declined any move. Instead, he has chosen to continue his journey with Juventus.
In the current season, Locatelli has featured in all four league matches, contributing with one assist.
The potential contract extension for Locatelli highlights Juventus’ commitment to securing the services of their key players. The club recognizes the importance of maintaining a strong squad and is actively working to secure the future of their talented midfielder.
Locatelli’s decision to remain at Juventus demonstrates his dedication to the club and his belief in the project under the guidance of coach Massimiliano Allegri. With his impressive performances on the pitch, the midfielder has proven to be a valuable asset to the team.
As negotiations continue, both Locatelli and Juventus fans will be eagerly awaiting the outcome. If the extension is finalized, it will provide stability and continuity for the player and the club, allowing them to focus on their shared goals and ambitions for the seasons ahead.
The potential contract extension for Manuel Locatelli reflects the club’s determination to retain their top talent. With his skills and contributions on the field, Locatelli has become an integral part of the Juventus squad. As discussions progress, all parties involved will be hoping for a positive outcome that ensures Locatelli’s continued presence in the black and white jersey.
Prove di rinnovo tra Manuel #Locatelli e la #Juventus. Il centrocampista può allungare fino al 2027 il che permetterebbe al club di abbassar l’ammortamento a bilancio. A luglio #DeZerbi (l’ha lanciato a Sassuolo) lo voleva al #Brighton, ma Loca ha declinato per restare alla #Juve
