According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona have contacted Juventus about a swap deal for Matthijs de Ligt.

The Spanish giants wanted to sign De Ligt last summer but lost out on him to Juventus. Their interest has remained and they are hoping to lure the Dutch international to the Nou Camp this summer.

However, Barcelona do not have the funds to sign De Ligt, and are hoping to use Arthur in a swap deal. Juventus are very interested in the Brazilian midfielder, but they do not want to lose De Ligt.

The Serie A giants are open to a swap deal for Arthur though, and are instead offering Daniele Rugani. The 25-year-old barely plays in Turin, and Barcelona reportedly see the Italian as an interesting player.
