Juventus have reportedly made the decision to keeper Federico Bernardeschi amid speculation he could be included in a swap deal for Lucas Paqueta.
Di Marzio stated on Friday night that a Paqueta-Bernardeschi exchange between Milan and Juve is “a possible option”, before Bianconeri director Fabio Paratici essentially took Bernardeschi off the market not long after.
Despite this, TMW reported that Milan would welcome Bernardeschi, something intermediaries and the Italian’s entourage are already aware of, and il Corriere della Sera stated on Wednesday morning that it is a last minute possibility.
According to Goal.com’s Romeo Agresti though, Juve have made the definitive decision to not sell Bernardeschi between now and the end of the current window.
The idea of a swap for Paqueta has not convinced the Old Lady, nor the idea of letting him leave for Barcelona, a track which Agresti claims has always been ‘cold’.
Bernardeschi and Juve will remain together until the end of the season before an assessment on his long-term future at the club will be made.
The 25-year-old joined Juve for €40m back in summer 2017 (as per Wiki).
