Roma – Juve Swap?


Italian outlets are reporting that Roma and Juventus are close to completing a swap deal for Marquinho in exchange for striker Alessandro Matri. Marquinho is seen as a second option for Juventus if they are to lose out on purchasing Napoli’s Juan Zuniga. After the summer arrivals of Fernando Llorente and Carlos Tevez, it has been widely expected that Juventus would offload Alessandro Matri and Fabio Quagliarella. Matri has scored 29 goals in 84 appearances in all competitions for the Bianconeri.
