Juventus are trying to get to Roma's Miralem Pjanic differently than by the €38m purchase clause, say reports.
The Giallorossi directors have often repeated that they have no intention of selling their star playmaker, but President James Pallotta himself was forced to admit they couldn't do anything if a buyer activated the clause.
According to the Gazzetta dello Sport, the Bianconeri are currently looking for alternative solutions that would allow them to sign Pjanic without a full €38m payment.
Specifically, sporting director Beppe Marotta is attempting to negotiate a deal that would involve an exchange of players rather than a pure cash transaction.
It remains to be seen whether Roma would accept anything other than cash for Pjanic, as they currently need to make a profit on their transfer market in order to meet the Financial Fair Play requirements.
