Mundo Deportivo: Juventus ask Barca about Dembele's availability
- Juve sporting director Fabio Paratici visited Barca headquarters on Saturday.
- He inquired about Dembele's availability.
- The Italians want the Frenchman to replace Dybala who is set to join PSG.
- They are offering Mandzukic and Rugani as a part of the deal for the 22-year-old.
On Monday a special guest visited Barcelona headquarters: Juventus sporting director Fabio Paratici. While most media outlets reported that the reason for his visit was the talks concerning Juan Miranda's potential transfer to Juventus Arena, other matters have been discussed, too.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the Bianconeri director has inquired about the availability of Ousmane Dembele who the Italians eye as a replacement for Paulo Dybala who looks set to join Paris Saint-Germain.
The problem is that Juventus can't afford the Frenchman before selling Dybala first. This is why they have also offered some of their players as a part of the deal for Ous - with the likes of Mandzukic and Rugani in the conversation.
As a reminder, Ousmane Dembele has been diagnosed with a strain to his left hamstring and is set to miss the next five weeks with the injury. This might represent a serious obstacle in a way of any potential deal for the forward.
