A younger and even more Italian Juve. The first transfer market moves of the bianconeri go in this direction, almost as if to rebuild that blue block which has always been a strong point of the team. In addition to the "senators" Bonucci, Chiesa, Locatelli and Perin, the young Miretti, Fagioli and Kean will be confirmed, but the Juventus managers now want to add at least one more piece to this tricolor mosaic. Davide Frattesi, midfielder for Sassuolo and the national team, is the number one target with the departure of Adrien Rabiot and represents the right reinforcement to launch the 4-3-3 that Allegri has had in mind for a year and hasn't been able to develop for the injuries of Pogba and Chiesa.
In recent days Francesco Calvo, head of the technical area, and Giovanna Manna, promoted on a permanent basis as sporting director of the first team, met in Milan with the CEO of Sassuolo, Andrea Carnevali, to discuss Frattesi. The starting bid has been set at 30 million euros, also because Roma and Inter have shown the same interest in the 23-year-old midfielder capable of scoring 11 goals in 72 Serie A games. The Giallorossi have forged it in their youth sector and they sold it to Sassuolo in July 2017 for 5 million euros, keeping 30% of any resale. Now that bonus can be part of a negotiation, while Juve aims to insert technical counterparts to convince the Emilian club. Soulé, De Winter and Ranocchia could end up in Sassuolo, with different formulas and methods, to lower the initial request of 30 million "cash". The match for Frattesi is open and Juve would like to avoid the encore of the Locatelli telenovela two years ago, but the maneuvers are only just beginning. Even if Massimiliano Allegri and the Juventus management have liked the player for some time, starting from that October 27, 2021 when Sassuolo won at the Stadium also thanks to his talented goal.
The return to ItalJuve is more than a trend, given that Andrea Cambiaso returns from his loan to Bologna and Gianluca Scamacca is also in the sights of the bianconeri for the attack in case of Vlahovic's departure. The centre-forward wants to leave West Ham after a year and can find his friend Frattesi (they were born in the same suburb of Rome: Fidene) right in Turin after the happy years at Sassuolo. The puzzle of the offensive department is engaging Juve and tomorrow the option to redeem Milik from Marseille expires: a discount has been requested and negotiations continue. —
