Barça & Juve are working on a player exchange deal
Barcelona are finalising a move for Juventus midfielder Miralem Pjanic. The operation is advanced but there's no agreement with Juve about which players could move in the other direction.
Barça have reached a verbal agreement with Pjanic and are waiting to see what players are of interest to Juve from a list that they sent to them. Things must be settled one way or another this week.
At first, the plan was for a straight swap -- one player for another -- but Barça could now send two to Turin. And one of them could be Jean Clair Todibo.
Juve wanted to sign the French defender before he moved to Camp Nou. Barça have offers worth 25 million euros for him, so that's the guide to how much he will be valued at in the deal.
The second player who could be involved is unknown. In theory, it should be a central midfielder, but Juve don't want the Chilean midfielder and their interest in Ivan Rakitic has faded, too.
