Per Gianluca Di Marzio, AC Milan youngster Manuel Locatelli is very close to joining Serie A side Sassuolo.
The deal for the young midfielder is known to be worth around €11-12m. Milan and Sassuolo are currently having a meeting to close the final details, and developments are expected in the coming hours.
Furthermore, Di Marzio adds that Milan most likely will include a buy-back close in the transfer, meaning they will have the opportunity to buy Locatelli in the future for an agreed fee.
Locatelli is regarded as one of the best young midfielders in the world, and his current contract with Milan expires in 2020.
