Juventus chief Paratici offers swap to Barcelona for Rakitic

Juventus sports chief Fabio Paratici has expressed interest in Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

Paratici made contact with Barca yesterday to discuss several transfer issues.

Tuttosport says his prime move was for Barca fullback Juan Miranda, but Paratici has also asked after Rakitic.

The Italian has proposed a swap involving Emre Can.

For their part, Barca are open to the deal, as they've sought to sell either the Croatian or Arturo Vidal all this summer.
