Loads of Manchester United fans are calling for the signing of Italy’s Euro 2020 star Manuel Locatelli.
The Sassuolo midfielder has been in stunning form for his country tonight, scoring both goals as they lead Switzerland 2-0 in their Group A clash.
Locatelli has shone in Serie A and is now showing what he can do on the big stage, with Man Utd supporters now calling for their club to bring him to Old Trafford.
This comes as Fabrizio Romano says that Juventus and Premier League clubs are interested in the talented 23-year-old, who could supposedly move for a bargain fee of just €40million…
Manuel Locatelli has been one of the best Serie A midfielders so far, not surprising to see him shining at the Euros. ??? #Locatelli
Sassuolo always asked €40m to sell him… before this match. Premier League top clubs interested, Allegri wants him at Juventus. Open race.

It remains to be seen if United can win what could be a hotly-contested battle for Locatelli’s signature, but he could well be an ideal upgrade on the likes of Paul Pogba and the out-of-favour Donny van de Beek in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s midfield.
Here’s some reaction as these wowed United fans call for Locatelli to be snapped up…
Locatelli what a player!
Would love him as CDM at United. Exact type of proper central defensive midfielder we need
