Barcelona, Juve in eye-catching swap deal plus £22m

Barcelona and Juventus have reached an agreement in principle over the swap deal of three players when the transfer window re-opens after the current season.

Following the coronavirus pandemic which has swept the globe and stopped football leagues in their tracks, it has been predicted that there will be few mega-money deals across the continent.

As such, teams have been tipped to get creative when looking to bring in and move out players.

Now the Spanish and Italian champions have reportedly come to an agreement over such a deal after negotiations at board level, according to a report quoting Sport.

According to Sport, a deal has been agreed between the clubs to see Miralem Pjanic and Mattia de Sciglio swap Turin for Catalunya, in exchange for Nelson Semedo.

Juve have also agreed to pay £22million for the Portuguese international full-back, who has been determined to leave Camp Nou.

Barca bosses have been keen to cash in as they look to raise cash to fund a move for Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez, and valued him at around £50million straight up.

Semedo has previously refused to be used as a bit-part player in negotiations with the Nerazzurri but was much more willing to head to Italy with the club who have won the last eight league titles.
