Juventus to open talks over Paulo Dybala deal

Published Add your comment

Juventus are ready to open talks with Chelsea and Arsenal transfer target Paulo Dybala when Juve face Palermo in Serie A this evening.

According to Italian newspaper Corriere Dello Sport, the young forward will be approached by Juventus officials today to sound out his interest in moving to the reigning league champions.

Chelsea and Arsenal have been heavily linked with the €40m-rated striker, who has been one of the revelations in the Italian top flight this season.

Elsewhere, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid and Paris Saint Germain are all thought to be keeping tabs.

But Juventus reportedly have the inside track as they look to plan for life after Carlos Tevez. It’s widely expected that the former-Manchester City striker will eventually move back to Argentina to finish his career.

Juve have options, like ex-Real Madrid forward Alvaro Morata, but they’re planning one marquee addition over the summer - possibly with funds raised by the sale of superstar Paul Pogba.

Radamel Falcao and Edinson Cavani are targets, and Falcao is likely available following a disappointing loan spell at Manchester United. But Dybala is though to be the main target, as the 21-year-old retains considerable sell-on value.

Should Juve sign Falcao or Cavan for a similar price, around the €40m mark, then it’s almost certain that they would not be able to recoup a significant portion of that should they choose to sell at a later date - Cavani is 28 and Falcao is 29.

What do you think Chelsea and Arsenal fans? Have you seen much of Dybala - and do you think he would be a good signing for your club at the end of the season?
