Juventus asked about De Jong in exchange talks with Barcelona
The Italian club sounded out the possibility of bringing in the midfielder
During the negotiations between Barcelona and Juventus over recent weeks, the Italian side sounded out the possibility of including Frenkie de Jong in a potential swap deal.
Barça, who only signed De Jong from Ajax for 75 million euros last summer, quickly shut down that line of questioning from Juve without the need for any more details.
De Jong is a key player for the present and the future at Camp Nou and allowing him to leave has been completely ruled out by the club's hierarchy.
The midfielder has had ups and downs in his first season but there is complete confidence in the Dutch international.
Matthijs de Ligt, De Jong's former Ajax teammate, has also been mentioned as a possible pawn in the talks between Barça and Juve, but his name has not come up in talks.
De Ligt's adaption to life in Turin has not been as straightforward as expected, but a change of scenery is not on the cards at the moment.
