Barcelona to swap 2 players for De Ligt?

Matthijs de Ligt’s agent, Mino Raiola, has recently refused to rule out an exit from Juventus in next summer’s transfer window.

This has apparently put Barcelona on red alert. The Blaugrana are long-term admirers of De Ligt and remain keen to do business despite their financial woes.

They may offer goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen and forward Memphis Depay – whom they valued at €75 million – in a swap deal. [Calciomercato – in Italian]
