Dybala’s Juventus future in doubt with Madrid & City keen

Juventus star Paulo Dybala could leave the club this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Gazzetta dello Sport and Tuttosport both have stories that cast some doubt on the future of 26-year-old Dybala.

The Old Lady are running on a tight budget and it is suggested that Dybala, who they rate at £100m (€110.6m), could be sacrificed.

Dybala is one of Juventus’ most valuable players and enjoyed another good season this term, scoring 17 times.

One year ago, Juventus were in a position to spend lavishly and did just that in paying €75m for Matthijs de Ligt.

But the Coronavirus pandemic has hit their finances, with even Cristiano Ronaldo reportedly being offered to clubs.

The appointment of Andrea Pirlo could lead to a new, more frugal transfer policy with less big money deals.

According to Gazzetta, there are also doubts as to whether Dybala will be a perfect fit for Pirlo’s planned system.

While selling Dybala is not guaranteed or even imminent, speculation is growing that he could go for the right price.

The Tuttosport newspaper adds that Real Madrid and Manchester City are ‘starting to show interest’ in the Argentine.

Dybala has still not signed an extension to his contract which runs out in 2022.

A renewal had seemed imminent not long ago, but is dragging, not helped by the fact his representatives are stuck in Argentina.
