The last big guys to have tried the Giro-Tour double were Evans (3rd Giro, autobus in the Tour), Basso (won the Giro, autobus in the Tour) and Contador who was 5th in the Tour after his brilliant Giro win in 2011.
Murito wont do Giro Tour but Giro Tour aint neccesarily that hard. Basso and Contador were in the third epoch of the Zomegnan period, those courses were insane. These Aquareone Giros are 1 day races by comparison. Froome could easily pull a double off imo.
I mean Contador 2011 wasnt even that far off. Afterall he lost 1.20 minutes in the Mont des Allesoutes screwjob,and also had a weak team for the ttt lost 30 more seconds there, and those time losses combined were greater than his eventual time deficit to Frank Schleck in 3rd. Considering that was after podiuming 9 out of 21 stages in the hardest GT since television, it certainly seems possible to me for someone of that ability to win both in the modern era.

The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago
