Rumours of Coutinho - Dybala swap deal grow

3rd April 2019, 12:18 by Neil Foster

Barcelona may reportedly look to do a swap deal involving Philippe Coutinho and Juventus' ace Paulo Dybala in the summer.

Coutinho moved to the Nou Camp from Liverpool in January 2018 for a fee rising to £142m but has failed to nail down a regular starting berth.

The Brazil forward has yet to show the form that made him such hot property while at Anfield and rumours have surfaced suggesting he will move on at the end of the current campaign.

It is thought that the South American does not want to return to the Premier League and a move to Italy may suit all parties concerned, if Barca can persuade the Old Lady to part company with Argentina international Dybala.

He has been in Turin since 2015, netting 77 goals from 175 appearances in all competitions for Juve as they continue to dominate Serie A.

It is claimed the La Liga giants want £130m for Coutinho and would take Dybala as part of the deal, but there is a long way to go before that particular transfer is given the green light.
