Juventus reportedly met again with Sassuolo this week to thrash out a deal for Manuel Locatelli, but it looks like the two sides are still not in agreement over a transfer fee.

The Bianconeri Vice President Pavel Nedved insisted in an interview with Sport Mediaset (via Football Italia) that the offer they had made for the midfielder was fair.

“We spoke to Sassuolo and we made our offer, which we believe is appropriate for the current climate, with the way finances and the transfer market have been affected by COVID.

“We are convinced this is a good offer and it is the right one. We are always confident, naturally in negotiations there are things that must be clarified and resolved. When you want a player and that player wants you, it’s clear…”

From media reports, it sounds like Juventus are still about €5-10 million lower than what Arsenal have come in with, though Sassuolo have also said they are happy to keep the player if they don’t have an offer that meets their valuation.

The future of Cristiano Ronaldo continues to be a topic for discussion.

“Ronaldo is our player, he has a year left on his contract and we are happy to have him with us. He guaranteed goals every year, and a lot of them too. He’s a top level player and we are counting on him.”
