AC Milan coach Gennaro Gattuso has reportedly blocked any exit for midfielder Manuel Locatelli this month.
Despite struggling for Serie A minutes under Gattuso and his predecessor Vincenzo Montella, Locatelli is not allowed to leave AC Milan, calciomercato.com has revealed.
The youngster has mainly been deployed in the Europa League, in large part due to Giacomo Bonaventura and Riccardo Montolivo being often preferred to the teenager.
Reports have suggested that Genoa are leading the race for Locatelli, however SPAL and Hellas Verona have also enquired about his loan availability.
However, the stance is clear: he is not allowed to leave.
