Barcelona, Juventus interested in Griezmann-Dybala swap deal

Barcelona and Juventus have held talks over a Antoine Griezmann-Paulo Dybala swap deal.

French publication L'Equipe via Marca says both clubs are interested in such a deal with Barcelona doing all they can to offload the Frenchman who is currently being considered a surplus to requirements.

There were earlier reports that Barca was willing to do such a deal with Atletico for Saul Niguez with the Laliga giants keen to reduce their wage bill by offloading some of the highest earners in the team.

Conversations between Barca and Juve are at their beginnings and unlike with the Saul deal, Barca would be getting a guaranteed goalscorer in exchange. Griezmann has scored 35 goals and given 17 assists in the last two seasons.

Dybala on the other hand wants a new challenge after being placed in the cold by former Juve boss Andrea Pirlo; the Argentine scoring five goals and assisting another three in the 26 games he played last year.

The player has had a bad knee injury but believes that he has a lot to offer still and a change of environment is something he would like to explore.
