Juventus midfielder Manuel Locatelli is expected to extend his contract with the Bianconeri until 2028, with an official announcement expected soon. Talks between club and player have been ongoing in recent weeks, with Locatelli stating recently that he was hopeful of a positive outcome.
Sky Sport Italia, Fabrizio Romano and numerous others report that a deal is all but complete, with the 25-year-old expected to pen an extension until 2028 with an improved salary.
Locatelli arrived in Turin after Juve agreed a two-year loan deal with an obligation to buy from Sassuolo for the boyhood Bianconeri fan. Despite initially struggling to fit into the starting XI, the midfielder has come into his own this season, often putting in important individual performances for the Old Lady.
