Goal: Milan and Juve ponder swap deal involving duo on expiring contracts – the latest

By Isak Möller -

Milan have started to make their plans for next season and although they haven’t secured Champions League yet, Paolo Maldini knows what needs to be done. And it seems a swap deal could take place, a report claims. 

According to Goal Italia, the Rossoneri are considering a swap deal with Juventus to get their hands on Federico Bernardeschi, while also solving the situation of Alessio Romagnoli. Both will expire in 2022 and a swap could be the right solution.

Milan are yet to reach an agreement with Mino Raiola on the renewal of the centre-back’s contract and the same goes for Juventus with Bernardeschi. Although the figures need to be analysed, the idea of a swap entices both clubs, at least that’s the feeling.

It should also be considered that Roma are entitled to 30% of whatever the Rossoneri get over €25m for Romagnoli, which could affect the structure of the deal. Having said that, they are not lacking reasons for the operation.

The Bianconeri would get a younger centre-back as Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini aren’t exactly getting any younger, while Milan would close a gap on the right flank. Furthermore, Raiola would surely be happy.

    This should be avoided at all cost. Switch one Raiola client on an expiring deal for another does nothing. Sell him to a club outside of Italy and stop signing players who are with Raiola

      Agree. I also don’t like the idea of strengthen Juve with younger center back. Let them suffer with their ageing backline LOL

      Petz, I doubt this speculation holds up to reality but Bernardeschi doesnt have raiola as his agent according to transfermarkt but has AGB Sport Management the same ones as sandro tonalis agency. I personally wouldnt mind bernadeschi but not really sure about sending romagnoli to juventus as they always seems to benefit from dealing with us. Theres also the question of bernadeschis current salary which is 7.4 mil euros before taxes and nearly at the age of 28 im not so sure he will drop on those demands so milan could just as well either pickup a free agent like thauvin and sell romagonli if needed or aquirre a younger prospect with more upturn in potential value.
