The coronavirus pandemic has made the summer transfer window uncertain, but here are the new rumours floating around Europe's big leagues and beyond.

TOP STORY: Juve and Barca discuss Roberto-Pjanic swap

Juventus are in talks with Barcelona about several potential transfers, including part exchange deals, and it would appear as though the Blaugrana are willing to let Sergi Roberto leave, according to Sport.

The two clubs are reported to be in contact with each other about the possibility of swap deals that would benefit both clubs, and the La Masia graduate is one of two players to interest Juve, alongside Arthur. Roberto's representatives are aware of Juve's interest, and Barca's willingness to sell, but there remains work to be done for the deal to get over the line.

Barca are keen to bring in midfielder Miralem Pjanic in return, and so any talk at the moment is about a swap deal rather than any fees changing hands.

Without a title for seven years, overtaken in England by Manchester City and Liverpool and not even regular qualifiers for the Champions League let alone contenders, the Brazilian, who was sold to Lyon by Louis van Gaal in 2015, says he has seen plenty of mistakes made at Old Trafford as United have attempted to recover from the loss of Sir Alex Ferguson.

"It has taken too long to get back on track," Rafael tells ESPN. "It's been seven years [without a Premier League title]. We did some things wrong. We started signing expensive players and giving them a lot of money. I don't agree with that. Just because a player costs £150 million does not mean he's good for the team. It depends on the character of the player."

Spurs have already been in contact with Barca about Arthur, but they're also looking for midfield reinforcements. And with Barca interested in Tanguy Ndombele, there could be mileage in a swap deal.

Tap-ins

- Barcelona and Manchester City are interested in Benfica's 22-year-old defender Ruben Dias, according to Record. Dias' agent is Jorge Mendes, who has offered the player to Barca as a potential replacement for Samuel Umtiti. The stumbling block for Barca and City could be the player's €100m buyout clause, which is too rich for both clubs.

- Inter are still harbouring hopes of signing Paulo Dybala, a player they've been targeting for five years, says Calciomercato. Dybala is a popular player in Turin and the Juve hierarchy would be unlikely to sell the Argentine to their main rivals. However, Dybala's contract runs out in 2022 and as yet the player and club are yet to agree on an extension -- which is enough to keep Inter interested.

- Burnley's financial problems have got rival clubs ready to pounce for manager Sean Dyche, according to the Sun. Burnley are struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic, which has alerted both Aston Villa and Crystal Palace. Villa would be keen to land Dyche if they can avoid relegation if and when the Premier League season restarts, while Crystal Palace are aware they need to look for a long-term replacement for Roy Hodgson at some point.
