The deal seems strange but Milan have been linked with Bernardeschi for the past three summers.

Goal Italia are reporting that AC Milan and Juventus are considering a swap deal between centre back Alessio Romagnoli and right winger Federico Bernardeschi this summer. Both have contracts expiring in 2022 and both are represented by the same agent, Mino Raiola. Both players have been struggling a bit for their respective clubs this season and thus the idea is being considered. It would be a big shock for Milan to allow their captain to join Juventus though.

Calcio Mercato are reporting that there are a number of issues such as Bernardeschi’s salary, Romagnoli’s transfer fee and sell on clause with Roma.

Emanuele Gamba of La Repubblica via CalcioMercato.it spoke on the swap deal to say:

“The premise is that Juve must recover a hundred million capital gains, this is the mandate for Paratici. The way to make it happen is through exchanges and Bernardeschi is one of them. The only problem is that on Romagnoli Roma boasts a sell-on in the event of a sale for a sum greater than 25 million euros. So the exchange should stop at that figure which would allow a good but not stratospheric capital gain of about fifteen million. Then Juventus would acquire a player they like. It is an operation that could be convenient for both teams and that is why discussions are at a fairly advanced stage.”
