Juventus are ready to sell Paulo Dybala to fund move for a European star.
Juventus have been upgrading their squad every single year since their title victory in 2011. The likes of Andrea Pirlo, Paul Pogba, Carlos Tevez, Arturo Vidal, Paulo Dybala, Miralem Pjanic, and most recently Cristiano Ronaldo have represented the Old Lady and lead them to domestic glory.
One of their stars, Paulo Dybala, who moved to Turin in 2015 could be sold for a fee of 100 million euros to fund deal for the Portuguese young star Joao Felix, according to Football Italia. The Benfica graduate has been turning the head over the last few years and he is tipped the leave the Portuguese outfit in the summer transfer window.
Dybala has had an underwhelming season under the management of Massimiliano Allegri, scoring just 10 goals in all competition, despite playing with the record signing Cristiano Ronaldo. On the other hand, Felix has been scintillating by finding the back of the net 14 times in all competitions.
In a recent interview, the 19-year-old has spoken about his admiration and desire to play alongside his footballing idol Cristiano Ronaldo one day which has intensified the link with Juventus in recent weeks.
“My dreams? I have two great dreams. I would like to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo because he is simply the greatest. An idol, a world icon, an example for everyone. Playing with a ‘monster’ like him would allow me to grow even more.” said Felix.
Allegri will have to shrug off interests from Liverpool, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, and Real Madrid to land the Portuguese starlet in the future. He is expected to cost around 100 million euros which would make him the second most expensive teenager after Kylian Mbappe. On the other hand, Manchester United have been linked with a potential move for Paulo Dybala. He could fit the bill at Old Trafford as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is looking to bring in a right winger.
