The talks between AC Milan and Juventus over a potential swap deal involving Alessio Romagnoli and Federico Bernardeschi are reportedly at a ‘fairly advanced stage’.
Goal Italia reported last night that the Rossoneri are considering a swap deal with Juventus to get their hands on Bernardeschi, while also solving the situation of Alessio Romagnoli. Both will expire in 2022 and a swap could be the right solution.
This has since been backed up by Calciomercato.com who added that Romagnoli and Bernardeschi look more like problems than resources for their respective clubs as their contracts expire at the end of next season and both are having a season that is anything but excellent on an individual level.
La Repubblica journalist Emanuele Gamba spoke to Calciomercato.it about the possibility of the swap deal taking place and he confirmed that it is a concrete hypothesis due to the fact it would benefit both sides.
“The premise is that Juve must recover a hundred million capital gains, this is the mandate for Paratici. The way to make it happen is through exchanges and Bernardeschi is one of them,” he said.
“The only problem is that on Romagnoli Roma boasts a sell-on in the event of a sale for a sum greater than 25 million euros. So the exchange should stop at that figure which would allow a good but not stratospheric capital gain of about fifteen million. Then Juventus would acquire a player they like. It is an operation that could be convenient for both teams and that is why discussions are at a fairly advanced stage.”
