Manuel Locatelli

A lot of talk that we need new MF. One thing is clear, we need more physical presence.

Real have Casemiro 185cm.

Barca Busquets 189cm.

City Rodri 191cm and so on...

Our tallest MF is Jorginho 180cm and he is very weak. This is something where we can and must improve.

Locatelli is very interesting player. Linked with Juventus, City mostly but looks like he likes Chelsea.

I expect all Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic to stay but Billy will go on loan so we would use another MF.

Locatelli is 186cm, strong, very good defensively but also great with passing. I think this is the type of player we need. He has a bit of everything needed for this position.

2 years left on contract, should not be expensive and we should be all over it. Just 23 years old. Already capped 9 times for Italy.

 

Style of play

Locatelli is primarily a deep-lying playmaker operating in front of the team's defense, in a role similar to that of Andrea Pirlo. Although not his preferred position, he can also play in 4–3–3 formation as a wing-leaning central midfielder, alternatively known as mezzala. He possesses good vision, passing, ball control, dribbling, as well as a powerful and accurate shot from long range. His reading of the game and ball-winning abilities were described as sufficient for a defensive midfielder.
