Tuttosport suggest more Juventus swap deals, including Leonardo Bonucci for Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets or Rodrigo Bentancur to Real Madrid for Marco Asensio.
Juve and Barca already raised eyebrows last summer by exchanging Arthur Melo with Miralem Pjanic, although neither of them made much of an impression at their new teams.
With the Super League project floundering and these sides still technically committed to the breakaway league, other clubs might not want to negotiate transfer deals with them.
According to Tuttosport, more Pjanic-Arthur style swaps are being considered to essentially cancel out both their financial burdens.
It is claimed this could see Bonucci head to Camp Nou in exchange for defensive midfielder Busquets.
Another option would have Bentancur sold to Real Madrid and Asensio bringing some much-needed quality to the Juventus midfield.
