Juventus have reportedly identified Paris Saint-Germain striker, Mauro Icardi as a replacement for star striker, Cristiano Ronaldo if he decides to leave with Calciomercato claiming that they would be willing to include the Portugese in a swap deal.

Ronaldo's future at Turin has been a source of speculation following the club's poor performance in the 2020/21 season, with it being understood that the 36-year-old has serious doubts over the Bianconeri's ability to challenge for the Champions League title next season.

Due to financial instability caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Juventus could be willing to sell Ronaldo in order to get rid of the player’s staggering wages and would be willing to send him to Paris in order to get Icardi.

After signing Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Ramos, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Gianluigi Donnarumma in the summer so far, PSG would need to sort out their finances in terms of selling players and one of the players being linked with a departure is the Argentinian who blew hot and cold last season.

The 28-year-old struggled for gametime last season, managing to make only 28 appearances - though he did score 13 goals. He was supplanted by Moise Kean, who was chosen ahead of him in the pecking order, which looks set to continue in the upcoming campaign.

Icardi would be ideal for Juventus considering that he has massive experience of playing in the Serie A, having spent six years at Inter Milan, scoring 124 goals in 219 appearances for them.
