Thomas-Berna swap deal?

Atletico Madrid might be open to swap midfielder Thomas Partey with Juventus winger Federico Bernardeschi.

Tuttosport claims the 27-year-old has been identified as the perfect profile for the Old Lady midfield, as a return for Manchester United star Paul Pogba will only be possible if the Bianconeri part with Paulo Dybala.

The newspaper reports Juventus are crunching the numbers to find a way to bring the Ghana international to the Allianz Stadium and have discovered a possible swap-deal including Bernardeschi.

The former Fiorentina winger reportedly impressed Diego Simeone during their meeting in the Champions League in 2018-19 and the Old Lady could offer the 26-year-old in a similar deal struck with Barcelona to swap Miralem Pjanic with Arthur Melo earlier this summer.

Juventus are working to push down the €50m asking price by including Bernardeschi in the deal and the latest reports suggest the Atleti coach could be interested in swapping the two players.
