‘Swap with Dybala And It’s A Deal’ ‘I’ll Drive Him There – Fans React To Reports Of Juve Interest In £60m City Star

Juventus are lining up a part-exchange offer for Manchester City winger Riyad Mahrez, according to reports.

The Bianconeri would be looking to offer Douglas Costa as part of the deal to sign the Algerian international.

A lot of supporters on Twitter would be behind selling Mahrez to Juve:

A few fans believe the club’s £60m summer signing should be given more backing:

Mahrez has made 37 appearances this season, scoring 11 goals and providing ten assists, including his strike against Bournemouth yesterday, but he has rarely started matches in recent weeks.

Manager Pep Guardiola has admitted that he hasn’t been able to give the 28-year-old as much game time as he would have liked.

Whether the City boss would be keen on getting Douglas Costa in exchange from Juve, it isn’t known.

The pair did work together at Bayern Munich, but the Brazilian’s form in Italy this season has been very poor. He has scored just one goal and contributed two assists; a far worse rate of return than Mahrez.
