didn't he always played regista? iirc montolivo was the one who switched to mezzala once loca was subbed in.

Hm I recall him playing as mezz'ala in the beginning but maybe I'm wrong though

He played B2B/CM primarily in the youth ranks and that's where he stood out. Although he's got great tackling skills, he hasn't developed the decision making/dictating play skills yet to play regista full time. It's great he can cover both positions but should play in his natural position where he can show off his full skillset (tackling, creativity, shooting).

Yesterday was just a glimpse of what he's capable of. Just like I said a few pages ago, in time he'll be considered the "white Pogba" mark my words.

Yes but the more you watch him at that position the more you realize that he is an anchor not a regista. Maybe somebody needs to show him a Van Bommel compilation so Locatelli can understand what suits his skills better.

Loca is super skilled player actually, for someone who can tackle and run like that. The man is a 12km per game player who can also shoot and pass... And yet some are not happy. Its almost Gattuso that can actually play. But is only 19...
Just give him peace and time. Cuore rossonero Locatelli! Forza

I wish he could stay and let him become an integral part of our midfield.

Should start most games from now on imo. Sosa isn't cutting it for me, Locatelli has had a decent rest now so he won't be burning out. We played our best football when he was starting imo.

It actually annoys me why montella didn't let him play as a mezzala yet.

Most people want Locatelli to stay as a substitute next season...
I want him on loan at Atalanta (no option or obligation) obviously...

My reason: Did you see how out of sorts he was in the last game of the season.. that's what happens when you play one game in 2 months...

I fear that he would be even behind montolivo in the pecking order next year...and this will seriously affect his development.

I have really big hopes for Loca but he needs regular playing time to figure out some aspects of his game and improve others...

Let's see what happens..

Atalanta wants player that either makes the difference or they can make money with. Locatelli on dry loan would be neither of them.

Only much smaller teams would be willing to give him playing time with a dry loan.

Higher expectations for him to be the Bandiera now. Really hope he vastly improves this season.

I think they are in a different spot this year with the Europa spot, and we've already taken one of their starting midfielders. Wouldnt mind the loan at all.

I think we should keep him next season. Montella will give him minutes, he can gain a lot of experience still through the cup, Europa league, and rotating in serie a. If he is stalling we can loan him in January or later
