Federico Peluso reportedly rejects Napoli's proposed swap deal for Pablo Armero

Valerio Pennicino

We've seen one deal fall apart because of what the other team wanted to do. Now, it seems as though another swap deal has fallen through the cracks. But this time, it's because of something Juventus-related, not the other way around.

A reported deal that would see Federico Peluso go to Napoli and Pablo Armero heading in the other direction to Turin is, well, kaput. Hey, another player who rose to prominence in Italy at Udinese. There seems to be a pattern here...

Here's what Gianluca Di Marzio has to say about what did — or didn't — happen.

Another swap that won't take place. But Juventus and Napoli had truly worked on swapping Peluso and Armero. The two clubs were negotiating just a few days ago on the basis of a loan swap for 5 months. ... Nothing happened though, Peluso declined the offer since he preferred to stay at Juve. Napoli and Juventus weren't able to complete the swap.

So let's see here...

The two deals involving Juventus that have broke down have both been swap deals. I don't know if it's just a random thing or something more than that, but it's not often you hear about Juve trying to do one swap deal in a transfer window, let alone more than one in the span of a week.

But, much like the Mirko Vucinic-Fredy Guarin deal, it's not happening. Unlike said swap deal, it's not because of Inter's stupidity. So there's that, I guess.

Pretty convenient that Peluso was on Jtv's Filo Diretto to preview Saturday night's match against Lazio. He also had a thing or two to say about what it's like to be a Juve player.

I mean, it's Juventus, so I can't say I blame him.
