Suarez in Juve-Barca discussions?

Barcelona and Juventus discussed Paulo Dybala, Luis Suarez, Mario Mandzukic, Juan Miranda, Emre Can and Ivan Rakitic, claim Tuttosport.

Juve director Fabio Paratici was in Spain for a summit with Blaugrana chiefs on Monday evening.

The main subject of discussion was teenage left-back Juan Miranda, who is valued at €15m compared to the €8m offer from the Bianconeri.

He is also wanted by Olympique Marseille and Sevilla, who might be prepared to take the player on loan rather than purchase outright.

According to Sportitalia, Barcelona were not interested in Daniele Rugani as part of the deal, but did ask after Mandzukic.

The versatile forward is available for €10-15m and surplus to requirements in Turin, so could be of use to Barca during a growing injury crisis.

Lionel Messi, Suarez and now also Ousmane Dembele are all struggling with injuries and it has affected their poor start to the season.

Tuttosport go even further, suggesting that Luis Suarez could be on the table for Juventus in a possible exchange deal with Dybala.

It comes after Brazilians Globoesporte and Spanish paper AS claimed the Bianconeri were offering Dybala plus €100m for Paris Saint-Germain rebel Neymar.

That’s not all, because Tuttosport also maintains the idea of a midfield swap between Emre Can and Ivan Rakitic was floated at this meeting.
