Juventus plan swap bid for Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic

Juventus remain keen on Barcelona midfielder Ivan Rakitic.

Sky Italia says after attempts over the summer, Juve have come back with an offer that would see Federico Bernardeschi move in the opposite direction.

Rakitic's position in Quique Setien's plans isn't yet known, but Maurizio Sarri is keen to have him in Turin.

Barcelona have already allowed Carles Alena to leave this January and they would only let Rakitic go for Bernardeschi in addition to a reasonable sum of money.
