Juventus have completed the signing of Italy midfielder Manuel Locatelli from Serie A rivals Sassuolo.
The Bianconeri will pay an initial €25million, plus add-ons that could be worth a further €12.5m, to land the 23-year-old on a five-year deal.
Locatelli arrives on a two-year loan with the permanent deal to be completed at the end of the 2022-23 season.
Locatelli scored twice against Switzerland and made five appearances in Italy’s Euro 2020 triumph.
Juve vice president Pavel Nedved revealed at the start of this month that the Turin giants had made what they considered to be an “appropriate offer” for Locatelli and they have now got their man.
Locatelli had the second best goals-per-90-minute ratio of any Italy player (0.66) in Euro 2020 after Matteo Pessina (0.95).
