Fabio Paratici, Juventus sports director, spoke in ‘Sky Sport’ before the match with Parma and revealed a possible Barça operation: “We are talking to Barcelona about two boys. We have had some years with us Matheus Pereira, a good player, coach, but who needs a certain type of game to express his best level. “We have seen a player of his (from Barcelona), Marquis, who has characteristics of a typical striker for Italian football and we are proceeding because we think it can be good for both clubs“. Matheus Pereira, midfielder born in Rio de Janeiro in 1998, belongs to Juventus since 2016, and was handed over last summer to the French Dijon after accumulating just three games last year.Juventus plans to separate from the Brazilian to incorporate Barcelona striker B Marqués, a player born in 2000 that measures more than 190 centimeters which, according to the Turin sports direction, adapts more to the characteristics of the Serie A.Paratici also referred to an operation that was revealed a few days ago of a possible Bernardeschi-Rakitic barter: “It was an idea that came out this summer, now I can say that there was no concrete interest.”
