Amauri-Cassano exchange on cards

There are audacious rumours of a swap deal bringing Amauri to Milan and Antonio Cassano to Juventus.

Sky Sport Italia reported the possibility this evening, suggesting the exchange would suit both parties.

The Rossoneri need an alternative to Zlatan Ibrahimovic who is strong in the air, which is Amauri's specialty.

Cassano has been told he could be released if he wants more regular first-team football in the lead-up to Euro 2012.

A switch to Juventus would not give him Champions League football, but he would provide the Bianconeri with some much-needed creativity.

FantAntonio would also be able to take several different roles in Antonio Conte's 4-2-4 approach.

It is certainly not the first time that Cassano has been linked with Juve, as over the years he has repeatedly been close to a Turin switch.

He has plenty of other offers on the table, though, including Fiorentina, Genoa and Palermo.
