Bernardeschi-Rakitic swap stalled?

The reported contact between Barcelona and Juventus about a swap deal including Federico Bernardeschi and Ivan Rakitic have allegedly stalled.

Gianluca Di Marzio reveals that the negotiation has slowed down between the Bianconeri and the Spanish giants, who are looking for an attacker to fill in for injured Luis Suarez.

The two clubs can’t agree on a fee, when Barcelona are only willing to offer €10m so far.

Blaugrana coach Quique Setien has allegedly turned his attention to Rodrigo from Valencia and agent Jorge Mendes has been engaged to conduct the negotiations.

This could make a deal for Rakitic to Juventus fall through, as the La Liga side might have to include a player in an exchange deal to lure Rodrigo away from the Mestalla.
