According to reports from Calciomercato, Juventus and PSG could be in a possible transfer swap for Argentine forwards Paulo Dybala and Mauro Icardi.

This is not likely to happen as soon as January but is something the two clubs are considering in the future.

Dybala has become a problem for Juventus at the moment as the Argentinean continues to struggle to get into form with Andrea Pirlo’s style of play.

He has also struggled with fitness and a positive Coronavirus test. This is believed to have been damaging to his opening months this term.

Possible Dybala and Icardi swap deal?

Contract extension negotiations between Dybala and Juventus have broken down due to Dybala’s demand of £15 million per season. Juventus is said to be prepared to give him only £10 million per season.

If he insists and the club cannot get him on a new contract, it is claimed that Dybala will be placed on the transfer market because his current deal expires in 2022.

Various clubs, namely Real Madrid and Manchester United, are targeting Dybala.

Paulo Dybala is struggling for minutes under the management of Andrea Pirlo, and started in just 3 Serie A matches this seaon.

Meanwhile, Mauro Icardi has been linked with a move to Juventus many times in the past, before eventually agreeing to head to Paris from Inter Milan for €50m in May.

Currently, Icardi has been ruled out for the Champions League match against Manchester United on Thursday due to injury concerns.

Mauro Icardi would have been PSG’s wildcard against United. Injuries have restricted him to just two goals this season from five games.

Juventus manager Andrea Pirlo has lost the faith in Dybala, starting Cristiano Ronaldo and Alvaro Morata ahead of Argentine this season.

“Dybala didn’t do that well,”

“He was injured and had to take antibiotics for weeks, so it’s natural he needs time to get back into shape.

“He does need to go beyond his limits in training to rediscover his form.”
