Douglas Costa swap with Thomas Partey?

Douglas Costa is not only wanted by Manchester United, but could also be used by Juventus in an exchange for Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey or Stefan Savic.

The Brazilian is on the market this summer, having struggled to overcome injury problems and his lack of a real tactical position within Maurizio Sarri’s squad.

Tuttosport had already suggested he be used as part of the approach for Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.

United keen on Juve pair?

Manchester United are reportedly pressing for Juventus winger Douglas Costa and have made enquiries for Merih Demiral.

A deal between Juve and United seemed to have hinged on who the Red Devils would accept in return for Paul Pogba.

However, Tuttosport is now claiming they are pushing hard for Costa’s signature.

Although Paris Saint-Germain are also showing interest, the newspaper explains the English giants would have the upper hand if Max Allegri became coach of the Ligue 1 champions.

Juventus trio in Pogba deal?

Manchester United are content to accept Aaron Ramsey, Adrien Rabiot or Douglas Costa as part of an exchange taking Paul Pogba to Juventus, it’s reported.

According to Rai Sport reporter Paolo Paganini, the negotiations are continuing behind the scenes in Monaco.

Following the coronavirus pandemic and the lockdown, all clubs are going to focus more on exchanges than expensive transfer fees.

If Juve are to bring Pogba back to Turin, it’ll require several players as part of the deal, even if his €110m price-tag has dropped.

Only Higuain and Rabiot abroad for Juve

Juventus have almost all their players back in Turin after going overseas, staying in quarantine, but Gonzalo Higuain and Adrien Rabiot are still abroad.

Training began this week at the Continassa ground, as players had tests for COVID-19 and could then run on the pitches, albeit keeping to social distancing guidelines.

However, those who had been abroad during the lockdown and only recently returned cannot take part, as they must first self-isolate at home for 14 days.

Juventus players start to return

Wojciech Szczesny and Cristiano Ronaldo have returned to Turin and must begin their 14-day quarantine, with Danilo and Douglas Costa expected back tomorrow for Juventus.

The Continassa training ground has opened up for individual training sessions, even though social distancing guidelines must still be observed.

Those who have already been given the all-clear for COVID-19 can begin running on the training pitches from today, but the situation is more complicated for players who have been abroad.

Report: No cash for Pogba

Rai Sport claim Juventus are only prepared to exchange players with Manchester United for Paul Pogba, not cash, while Inter could propose Marcelo Brozovic.

The World Cup winner is also wanted by PSG and Real Madrid, as his exit from Old Trafford seems to have been decided already.

According to Rai Sport, Pogba would prefer a return to Juve rather than trying another new experience in France or Spain.

It’s also reported that the offer would only be made up of player exchanges and not include any cash.

Juventus prepare Pogba swaps

Juventus would welcome Paul Pogba and are happy to exchange him with Miralem Pjanic or Douglas Costa to Manchester United, claims Gianluca Di Marzio.

The Sky Sport Italia transfer expert spoke to Sky Sports UK this evening and confirmed some stories that had already emerged in Italy and England over the last few weeks.

It had been suggested Pogba could return to Turin, but with the coronavirus lockdown affecting transfer fees and the fact he only has one year left on his contract, Manchester United’s hopes of €150m are dashed.

Juventus swap deals for Pogba

Juventus have several players who could be used in an exchange for Paul Pogba, with Douglas Costa, Miralem Pjanic, Alex Sandro, Aaron Ramsey or Adrien Rabiot to Manchester United.

Inter, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are again linked with a swoop for Pogba this week, as news filtered through from England that United were not going to activate the extension option on his contract.

That makes a summer sale almost inevitable, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit transfer fees hard and we probably won’t see another €120m move quite so soon.
