While Juventus continues to wait to be certain about Cristiano's future, its board is about to close two important additions. In the last hours, according to 'Tuttosport', the general director Federico Cherubini works to give Allegri to Manuel Locatelli and Kaio Jorge. The Brazilian forward, also wanted by Milan, already has an agreement to arrive as a free agent in January, but the Italians want to advance his signing and are accelerating contacts with Santos. Juve is also attentive to the situation of Gabriel Jesus, his main wish if Cristiano finally leaves, an option that has not yet been ruled out.
The priority, yes, is to strengthen the core, and that is why in the next few hours there will be a meeting with Sassuolo to Locatelli. The latest official offer reaches 37 million euros including variables, although the operation would be carried out with a two-year assignment and a purchase obligation, as has happened with Federico Chiesa. The player, for his part, ruled out Arsenal's proposal and wants to join the Bianconeri as soon as possible: his will is one more weapon for the Turinese. The last obstacle, apparently, are the variables that will transform the transfer into a transfer: Juve wants them to be activated by objectives (qualification for the Champions League), while the Neroverdi want to be more sure of perceiving the figure beyond what occur in the green. Locatelli, after being crowned European champion, should return to work with his club between tomorrow and Friday, but he has already made it known that his will is to start the preseason directly with Vecchia Signora. The Juventini want to please him.
