Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United have reportedly been alerted to the possibility of signing Paulo Dybala from Juventus in January.
According to a report by Daily Mirror, Paulo Dybala could be open to the prospect of leaving Juventus in the January transfer window, according to Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini. The possibility of the Argentine international being available in the market has alerted the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United as a result.
It is still early days in the 2018-19 season. But, on first evidence, it looks like Paulo Dybala could be the player most affected by the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo at Juventus this past summer. While the 24-year-old started the Bianconeri‘s first game of the campaign, he has only managed to clock 10 minutes in the two fixtures that have followed.
Unsurprisingly, reports of the Argentine international being discontent with his situation have emerged. Dybala though, will have no shortage of suitors if he indeed decides to call it quits at Juventus in the lead up to any future transfer window, with the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United interested.
At Real Madrid, Dybala could coincidentally fill the void left by the departure of Ronaldo. The player’s ability to play across the frontline should also provide Julen Lopetegui with a healthy solution in attack, as well as a player who could contribute to the goals tally at a consistent rate.
Barcelona, on the other hand, could have, in Dybala, a like-for-like alternative to Antoine Griezmann, who was one of their top targets this past summer. The move to Camp Nou would also provide Dybala a chance to play club football alongside his idol Lionel Messi, who could potentially interchange with the 24-year-old in attack, if a transfer is completed.
Meanwhile, a move for Dybala could provide Manchester United with the chance of snapping up a solid solution for the right side of attack, which Jose Mourinho has been yearning for, pretty much since he joined the club two years ago. Additionally, Dybala’s creative abilities could provide the cutting edge for the Premier League heavyweights in the final third.
Now, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid could have been given the required impetus to pursue a move for the Argentine forward. Palermo owner Maurizio Zamparini has claimed that Dybala could be open to a January exit from Juventus while also launching a scathing attack on Massimiliano Allegri.
“Every time he is left out, it makes me want to cry. He’s on the bench because of Allegri. Allegri should come to Palermo and win the Scudetto. Two years ago, I sent Dybala a message and advised him to go to Spain, not Italy. He’ll leave, because Juventus want to get €120 million. In January, I think he’ll leave for Spain. He has offers in Spain and England.”
If Dybala heeds Zamparini’s advice, Real Madrid and Barcelona could have the advantage in the race to sign him. However, Manchester United will also fancy their chances as they can match the two Spanish heavyweights at least on the financial side of things.
For now, Dybala has affirmed his commitment to Juventus, having insisted recently that he is working hard to reclaim his spot in the starting lineup. But, if his struggles continue, the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona and Manchester United could come calling in January.
