Journalist claims Juventus have proposed winger swap deal to Milan – the Rossoneri’s response

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan have refused an offer from Juventus of a swap deal involving Rafael Leao, according to one journalist.

Calciomercato.it were the first to report the idea of a swap deal involving Leao and Federico Bernardeschi, as the Bianconeri are looking to bolster their attacking firepower after a difficult first half of the season.

The report added that the Juventus management continue to admire the Portuguese starlet, who has repeatedly been linked with Juve in the past, and they had offered Bernardeschi as part of a swap. It would be an equal exchange, the source claimed, as both players are worth around €30million.

According to Tancredi Palmeri on Twitter, Juve have indeed offered up the former Fiorentina star to try and get their hands on Leao, and did offer an exchange deal, but it was refused by the Rossoneri who presumably wish to bet on the ex-Lille man given his exciting potential.
