Juventus could use Alex Sandro as a potential trade chip in a deal for Mauro Icardi in the coming months according to a report in today’s print edition of Tuttosport.
Icardi is currently out on loan at Paris Saint Germain from Inter and the reigning French champions have an option to sign him up on a permanent basis which they reportedly intend to do.
It has long been rumoured that Juventus are huge fans of Icardi and would like to add him to their ranks to bolster their attack and in order to acquire him they would be willing to offer a player(s) to PSG in return for Icardi.
Miralem Pjanic, Douglas Costa. and Mattia De Sciglio’s names have both been mentioned but this report states that Alex Sandro’s name is now in the mix of players they could try and use to entice PSG into doing business with them.
If they let Sandro go to acquire Icardi, the report from the Turin based newspaper goes on to state they will look to replace the Brazilian with Chelsea’s Emerson Palmieri, who is also on Inter’s radar.
