Juventus director Fabio Paratici has responded to rumors the club could swap Miralem Pjanic with Barcelona’s Arthur and says the two clubs are talking at the moment.

Arthur’s future remains the subject of speculation despite the Brazil international having insisted he wants to stay at the Camp Nou.

There have been reports of interest from Juventus and a suggestion the club could offer Pjanic in exchange for the 23-year-old.

Paratici has been asked about the rumors in an interview with Sky Sport and says he has been in contact with the Spanish champions.

The Juve director also spoke about how the transfer window will be a little different this time around in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Players swaps are being tipped to be more prevalent, and Paratici agrees they could be a feature of the window.

Arthur said last week he’s “only interested” in staying at Barcelona, while manager Quique Setien has said no-one at the club has told him anything about a possible swap with Pjanic.
