Felipe Melo-Diarra exchange?

Juventus and Real Madrid could exchange Felipe Melo with Lassana Diarra, a deal that would suit both clubs.

According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Antonio Conte sees Diarra as the perfect partner for Andrea Pirlo in his new Bianconeri midfield.

Real are more than willing to release Diarra, as he is not considered a key player at the Bernabeu.

Similarly, Brazil international Melo is among those on the list of figures ready to be sold in Turin this summer.

It is said that Jose Mourinho respects Melo and would like to work with him in Madrid.

The Gazzetta even suggests that this could be a straight-swap deal valuing both midfielders at the same price.
